This class begins with a review of painting principles, including optical mixing of layered color, essential elements of strong composition and the effects of light. We will also focus on the later stages of painting, learning to harmonize color masses while developing the ability to really see and mix color, especially those that are nuanced and subtle. Finally, we will explore the finishing touches that turn paintings into personal statements.
Painting from costumed models and still life, plein air artists will benefit from in-studio projects that solidify valuable principles needed for outdoor painting. Demonstrations, lectures and a slide show are designed to give students tools to achieve intensely beautiful color.
