February 1 – 4, 2017
Colin Page

This class will focus on painting the landscape on location. We will work on careful observation of color, creating more dynamic paintings, and using clean and purposeful paint application. The key to better plein air painting is learning to simplify a complex landscape, using rich color and a painterly brushstroke. We will start each day with a discussion of a different lesson and a morning exercise designed around that lesson. Each afternoon will be used for painting time while Colin works with students one-on-one. This class will be a fun way to expand upon your painting skills and understanding in a beautiful environment. Class size is limited to ensure individual attention and instruction. Please contact the Debra Huse Gallery at 949.723.6171 or mail@debrahuse.com to enroll.

Location: Orange County, CA
Hours: 9am – 4pm
Tuition: $650
