Study the principles and techniques of outdoor painting along the Seine, in the Luxemburg Gardens and the streets of Paris. These include how to quickly establish the composition, pictorial space, perspective, and light and dark masses using Classical and Baroque concepts; selecting and mixing Naturalistic and Impressionistic colors; capturing the fleeting effects of sunlight and changing light conditions; rendering foliage, flowers, water and architecture with painterly techniques; expressing atmosphere, diffraction and the effects of aerial perspective; evoking the mood, character and charm of Paris; and alla prima brush and palette knife techniques. Figure and portrait painters will find that this workshop helps them paint in a more broad and painterly manner.
The workshop is open to artists of all levels and all media. Demonstrations will be in oil.
