On Location Oil Painting
Ages: 18 - No Limit
This class is designed for the beginner to intermediate painter who wants to work in the field with more success. The class will learn how to sort out values, organize a painting and simplify on location while balancing the limitations and challenges of working outside.
We will learn the difficult skills of capturing the essence of the outdoors and a sense of place. The first two weeks and last three weeks are for indoor studio work to finalize the pieces and refine them. We will be working at the League on these days. All other classes will meet at specified out door locations. Student must have some drawing and oil painting experience, and be able to understand basic perspective. Some perspective will be taught in the class.
