Painting the Outdoor Still Life


with Bridget Ertelt

Calendar Aug 10, 2024 at 10 am

When we hear people talk about plein-air painting, we often think of landscapes. However, painting the outdoor still life is an excellent way to study light and color. Students can learn a lot from this type of study as it is easier to see how light and color shifts occur on simple objects than on the more complicated forms in the landscape. Each day, exercises will be presented to help students achieve strong starts. The class focus will be on color, light effect, and value. Students will begin the first few sessions with very simple still-life setups that will become more complicated as the workshop progresses.
