August Workshop

The Luminous Landscape
August 10-11
Tuition: 300.00
Location: China Camp, San Rafael

The practice of art can be part of our daily experience. Through this practice, we begin to realize a deeper communion with the world we live in and new ways of seeing. This 2 -day workshop is geared toward beginner/intermediate and intermediate painters, working in oil. We will discuss the importance of thumbnail sketching as an important tool for developing composition and ideas for paintings.
The primary focus will be on how to convey the sense of strong directional light in your paintings by clarifying and pushing the values. We will also work on value patterns and shapes to help in developing successful compositions. There will be discussions on materials, scene selection and brushwork. I will do a demonstration painting each day, and work with students individually on their paintings throughout the day as we paint outdoors. The workshop will be held at the historic China Camp Park in San Rafael. This small fishing village, consisting of several rustic buildings, is nestled on the edge of the bay with a backdrop of Marin's golden hills. Additional motifs include views of the bay and a small island. Limited to 15 students maximum
Hours 9-4pm
