This will be my 5th year teaching on this lovely and unique Island.
This is a great destination workshop. There is plenty of variety to paint and Charles and the staff do an incredible job keeping you comfortable at the School. The facility is top notch.
This workshop will introduce you to the Prismatic Palette and its use in helping you capture the myriad light effects you are faced with when painting en plein air. Correct use of the Prismatic Palette will help you judge values, using warm and cool tones to bring things forward and to push things back, and to depict light and shade, and to describe the type and time of day.
The first day, I will lecture and paint a demo explaining my process. The rest of the week will be spent outdoors painting my favorite Island locations. Students can expect to paint two images daily - one in the morning, and another in the afternoon.
Key factors such as rhythmic-connected drawing, underpainting, creating a profound sense of atmosphere and effectively using greens will be discussed. I will work with you individually at your easel to address compositional and color issues, and will provide careful critique.
Note to students: Teaching is tailored to your level so all levels are welcome. My only requirement is that you enter the class humble to nature and open to new information.
