About The Event

Come learn the art of painting the landscape out in the open air, also known as “plein air.” Visiting Gibbon’s Park, we will discuss how to simplify the array of information when faced with painting a landscape on sight. We will learn how to block in major shapes then alter these shapes to transform them into stunning landscapes. If you are interested in simplifying the painting process and painting more rapidly, this may be the course for you. (Please note we will meet at TAP for registration the first week and walk to Harris Park to paint. The remaining weeks we will meet at Gibbon’s Park.)

4 supports – 8”x10”- no larger than 12”x16”—these can be stretched cotton duck canvases, canvas boards, gessoed masonite panels or gessoed wood panels

VIRIDIAN GREEN OR THALO GREEN

ULTRAMARINE BLUE

RAW UMBER

BURNT SIENNA

IVORY BLACK (OPTIONAL)

Portable easel OR a board (larger than your support) onto which you can fasten your support with bull clips. (In this case it would be best to sit while painting and use rigid supports like canvas boards or panels.)
