The focus of this workshop is to learn to create a strong foundation around which to build your paintings, using 2 basic visual approaches that focus on the idea of using big value shapes(groups of similar values)in order to simplify and design the 2 dimensional space. From there we will explore ways to finish the painting by deciding where to break down those big shapes into smaller shapes of color and value. It is of great importance in plein air painting that artists get their ideas down very quickly because of the changing light conditions and weather concerns.Utilizing these two approaches will allow students to get it down faster, giving you a "road map" to guide you through the painting process so you don't lose your way and start chasing the light mid painting when the light or weather has changed. This will also allow for a stronger structure and a more dynamic painting in the end.
