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, and a breakdown of the behavior of light on water are some of the topics that will be discussed and demonstrated. We will meet on Friday evening for a demo and talk, and then all head out to paint on Saturday morning after breakfast. One on one instruction will be a part of the routine. We will break for lunch and possibly another lecture, then paint in the afternoon. There is a group potluck on Saturday night. Sunday morning we paint outdoors again, then put up our work for a final discussion and critique. Instructor works and teach pastels, but participants are welcome to bring other mediums, if they are comfortable with them. Participants must provide their own supplies and equipment, and be able to carry their gear by themselves. We will hike short distances to some locations
