This is an introductory class to plein air painting using either gouache or oil paint. Students will learn how to observe and edit the world around them. The class will focus on simplifying shapes, seeing accurate values and assigning colors to those values, as well as addressing playing warm colors off of cool colors to create a sense of vitality within the picture. Students will learn how to make a better painting by constantly comparing the visual elements: line, shape, value, color, texture and edges. The class will visit a variety of locations to study both architectural and natural subjects. While on location, students will also learn the importance of having a clear intention before and during the painting process.
