This workshop is open to oil and pastel painters who are already comfortable with their media and have experience working outdoors. We will start with field work; gathering possible candidates to be used for larger paintings, followed by a few days of studio work enlarging the studies selected. There will be a demonstration to students the process from start to finish. Students should expect to get a good start on the final painting but may not finish it entirely. The goal is to get the student to see the value in creating accurate field work that can be used as a reference in the studio, to work up a concept from the field into a strong studio painting that has similarities to, but is not a copy of, the field work. We will use photography where necessary and discuss the benefits and disadvantages of using them together. Field and studio work. Critique, materials discussion and group conversation will be part of the week.
