This class will focus on observing different qualities of light and color in nature, and how they translate into painting. Reflected light in shadow, atmospheric color and light, time of day, as well as a breakdown of the behavior of light on water, are some of the topics that will be discussed and demonstrated. Lectures and demonstrations in the field, as well as plenty of hands on time tackling these issues will round out our weekend. Saturday night will be an indoor lecture on these issues with plenty of examples to help inspire and solidify these concepts. Critiques and discussions in the field will take place as we go. Accommodations at the Historic Lifeboat Station included.
