Finding your Natural Style:  Plein Air Painting Workshop with Kevin Gleason

Two Days: Saturday and Sunday April 28 and 29

Plus an Introductory Evening Friday April 27

About the Workshop 

Enjoy an evening in the artist’s home viewing and discussing art followed by two days of painting and demos in the field.

There are as many ways to interpret a scene in painting as there are artists in the world.  An artist’s style emerges as they make decisions about what aspects of a scene they want to emphasize.

The main focus of this workshop will be on composition and design, since the design is what communicates this visual idea to the viewer.  We will learn how individuals can use shapes, values, edges and color combinations in a personalized way to create a strong focal point and emphasize what they love most about a particular view.

There will be daily demos in oils followed by exploratory exercises and then individualized attention while painting on site.  Students of all levels using oils or acrylics are welcome.
