Capturing The Light Effect Outdoors In Oil
Do you want to know how to paint the light effect of a bright sunny day? In this workshop, we will focus on how to capture the light through value and color temperature. When you want to show form and three dimensions on a 2D picture plane it is essential to have the appropriate value structure, that is the lights and darks of the painting. It is equally important to have the right color temperature relationships, a yellow green (warm) next to a blue green (cool). Composition, drawing and edges will also be covered as all of these elements contribute to capturing the reality of the scene and impression we’re attempting to paint.
You will learn:
how to capture the light of the day, the focus of this workshop
Along the way you will also learn:
how to select WHAT to paint
how to simplify the scene
to get the big shapes right in the beginning
the importance of edges
these aspects and much more will be covered
I teach methods and ideas in a way that will hopefully enhance YOUR style and aesthetics when it comes to creating a work of art.
Supplies: I tell students to bring the paint and brushes they normally use when plein air painting. I will send along a list of colors, brushes and tools that I use when time gets closer. I always encourage students to try any and all of my brushes or colors.
