AUGUST 20-22
Lessons in Plein Air and Studio Pastel

Enjoy the beauty and challenge of painting in the field, and then learn how plein air painting can be used as a reference for larger studio pieces.  You will spend two days working in the field, with emphasis on simplification, fresh color, accurate drawing, dynamic composition, and finding “the story” in the complexity of nature.   

Back in the studio you will analyze the plein air work, individually and as a group,  Aaron will introduce you to charcoal drawing as a direct and effective means to plan studio pastels.  Finally, with the aid of a plein air study, a charcoal preparatory drawing, sketches, and perhaps a few photos, you’ll be able start a studio painting with confidence.     

This class will include demonstrations in the field and studio, friendly critiques, and plenty of one-on-one time. 

NOTE: While the purpose of the workshop is to equip students to execute studio paintings from plein air studies, it is not expected that students will finish their studio paintings in the allotted time. Studio time will be more focused on introducing helpful tools to use in planning and starting a studio painting. The planning process will be used to take an in depth look at composition, color, value, and when and how to make changes that both enhance the idea and make it more personal. This is a process-over-product approach that will equip students to approach the painting with clear direction and confidence.
