Painting From Life Workshop with Louise Pond
July 26, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$130
“The act of painting outdoors is like a dance to the tempo of the evolving day, following the lead of the wind, impelled by the measured meter of shadows moving in their eternal celestial rhythms.” – Louisa McElwain
This one day workshop will be a fast paced exploration of painting en Plein Air, making marks, eliminating the unnecessary, telling the most with the least amount of details, all wrapped up with perfect values and a rousing composition and exciting chroma.
*All painting mediums welcomed; pastel preferred.
*Louise’s (approx. 4) favorite pastels and paper provided for exploration.
*Wet medium students must have a basic concept of color mixing.
*Please note, this class will be held outdoors. Dress accordingly with layers, hat, etc.
Morning coffee & lunch provided with workshop.
