Just wanted to take a moment to announce a few workshops I have planned for 2014, both here in Evergreen, Colorado. For updated class information, you can also check the workshops page on my website.
Landscape Painting On Location
Workshop Dates: 5/14/2014 - 5/16/2014
Location: Center for the Arts Evergreen
Stephanie Perkins - Coordinator of Education, CAE
This workshop is for painters who want to develop an understanding of the fundamentals of plein air painting, with an emphasis on simplifying the landscape and selecting only the most important elements in the landscape to support the artist’s concept. Topics discussed will include how to effectively capture light, atmosphere and mood in paint while using strong composition and color harmony. We will be painting on location daily. Each morning will begin with a lecture and demo, followed by painting on location, and a critique at the end of the day.
From Plein Air to the Studio
Workshop Dates: 9/9/2014 - 9/12/2014
Location: My Studio - Evergreen, Colorado
This workshop will focus on how to effectively gather reference material while painting on location, and then use that material to convert field work into a studio painting. We will spend the first 1.5 days painting on location outdoors, then go into the studio and use our reference materials (studies, sketches, and photographs) to create a studio painting. Common issues that come up when converting plein air studies to studio work will be discussed in full. Demonstration outdoors and in the studio will be used to illustrate the process of producing a studio painting from outdoor reference.
