Painting with Light
This workshop is a combination of plein air and studio painting. Using acrylic and (optional) watercolor paint, we will start with plein air sketches and then develop these into finished compositions. We will touch on color theory and how it affects the impact, perspective, and atmosphere of our work. Using various gel mediums, we can explore techniques to enhance variety and depth on the surface of our paintings and broaden our mark-making vocabulary. Sharon has a variety of creative warm-up exercises to encourage a fun new perspective on our painting practice.
