Painting the Outdoor Still Life


with Bridget Ertelt

Calendar Aug 19, 2022

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 in the more complicated forms in the landscape. Each day exercises will be presented to help students achieve strong starts. Class focus will be on color, but light effect, value, and drawing will also be discussed. Students will begin the first few sessions by painting very simple still-life set-ups that will become more elaborate as the workshop progresses. Class will be taught in oils and tailored to all skill levels. Limit 12 students.

Time: Friday, 11:00am–5:00pm, Saturday & Sunday, 10:00am–5:00pm
