IT’S NOT EASY PAINTING GREEN
Workshop Dates: Friday, April 17 – Sunday, April 19, 2020
Location: Sorrel Sky Gallery, 828 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301
Learn how to easily and successfully capture the greens of spring and summer in your landscapes! This three-day studio workshop will explore an approach to color and painting systems that will help you to understand and achieve the effects of atmosphere and light in your paintings. Topics will include basic color theory, understanding chroma, understanding color value, relative color temperature, atmospheric perspective, the effects of light, pigment characteristics and mixing paints. Field studies, photographs and sketches will be used to study and develop pieces that explore landscape scenes. Reference materials will be provided but students are encouraged to bring their own as well. Daily demonstrations will be in oil but other media are welcome. This class is open to artists of all ability levels.
