This class will take you through the steps of creating a successful plein air painting. The beginning stages, consisting of preliminary sketches and blocking in, will be discussed and practiced, as will elements further into the painting process: color harmony, value and atmospheric perspective. Teaching will be strongly one on one, as you paint your choice of scenery in various Long Island locations. Instructor demonstrations will be incorporated during classes, though emphasis will be on student painting time. On rainy days, class will be held indoors at the Atelier, using photos that you bring or those provided to you. A variety of ability levels are welcomed, as long as the materials list is given adequate attention.
