Ken Salaz
"Essential Landscape painting - From Techinques to Poetic Expression"
3 Day Landscape Painting Workshop in Jackson NH

$425 Per person. Space Limited.
Beginner to Advanced - all levels welcome.

Ken will teach the Plein Air by breaking it down into the fundamental elements of Drawing, Value, Composition, and Color. This will be enhanced by a demonstration of atmospheric perspective, edge control, quality of light source, and paint application. There will be a detailed explanation of how to approach the different textures of Water, Trees, Sky and Landmass. In addition to these elements, participants will be guided through the process of developing a painting by the following steps: A small color study, a Plein Air Study, and a Light Effect study. The workshop will conclude with the teaching of the idea of Light Effect and what decisions are necessary for achieving a powerful light effect directly from Plein Air work. Personalized and daily critiques are a foundation of this workshop. Each participant is encouraged to bring one sample of previous work.

Michele Byrne
"People at the Beach, On the Boardwalk & In the Cityscapes" 

Many artists hesitate to add figures to their work, as it is not an easy thing to do. Michele teaches you how to add the figure in a natural, fluid way, simplify the subject, and break it down into basic shapes. You will learn how the light falls onto the subject and affects the colors and values in a landscape. Michele will help you streamline your technique and see in a new way that will greatly enhance your painting skills. There will be a short demo each morning and then students will work on their own paintings with Michele's expert advice. Michele will be working in Water Mixable oils, but students may use standard oils if they prefer. The workshop will take place indoors in a very comfortable setting and is suitable for both beginning and intermediate painters. 
Location: Newport Beach, CA
Hours: 9am-4pm
Tuition: $400

Rick J. Delanty
“A New Perspective on Painting,” three-day workshop

Problems in painting frequently originate with problems in drawing, with perspective often being the most significant area of concern. Beginning in the studio, and using photographs and the outdoors as reference, this three-day workshop will present the fundamental drawing and painting tools an artist needs to create successful representational paintings both indoors and on location.
 
Using architectural models, Rick will demonstrate techniques in both drawing and painting to help students create realistic paintings, such as: layering, perspective, diminishing size, neutralized color, and establishing effective value and color relationships in a painting.
 
Composition, cropping, and subject selection will also be emphasized.
Artists may use the medium of their choice to create three paintings that demonstrate believable depth. One class session will be devoted to working outdoors, from life.
If you want to create paintings that “look more real,” this workshop is for you.
Oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache, and pastel welcome.
 
Thursday through Saturday, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Presented at San Clemente Art Supply, 1531 N. El Camino Real, San Clemente, CA 92672

Peggi Immel
Architecturals for the Plein Air Painter

Never again be afraid to include that barn in your painting or to tackle portraying your neighbor’s Victorian house with the turret. This short workshop will shed light on the mysteries of vanishing points, shadows, shingles, fenestration and a whole host of other topics architectural subjects can bring to your painting.

We will focus on covering the fundamental skills needed to effectively depict buildings, fences and other manmade features in the landscape. A session in the morning will include demos and some written material on techniques as well as basic information on linear perspective and the use of a visual approach to perspective for painters. During the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to paint one or two pieces with individual attention and critique from the workshop instructor. The class will be held en plein air weather permitting.
