The Natural World: Shape and Color
Black Pond Studio
May 30-June 2, 2019 Thursday-Sunday
10 a.m.- 6 p.m.
The natural world has remained a potent source for artists throughout history. The focus of this workshop is simplifying complex vistas into distinct shapes of specific value and hue. A series of exercises with large brushes and palette knives will encourage this process. We'll begin with viewing contemporary and historical landscape painters and a discussion of the issues, tools and procedures unique to painting outdoors. Each day a one-sitting painting will be completed. Those who have painted outdoors many times or those doing so for the first time are welcome to join this intense workshop meant to energize your painting practice. Water based or oil paint may be used.

Color Rules! It does, absolutely, but there are NO rules, no formulas, no tricks. There is intention, getting color to say what you want it to say. In this intensive workshop we consider basic color concepts such as value, hue, and saturation and learn how to manipulate them to energize our work. Building color relationships with gouache on paper helps us understand how color functions and build our personal color vocabulary. This workshop is meant for anyone working with color: painters, designers, architects, and others.
