Free Plein Air Seminar @ Artworks

 

Laureen Hylka Wondolowski is a professional artist living in New England. Laureen states that “plein air painting is important for gathering ‘truthful information’ of the landscape”. Painting on location can be overwhelming. In this workshop, you will learn how to gather information and create on location sketches. You will simplify your intent for the painting, by drawing quick thumbnail sketches. These will be used as a map for your painting. You will continue by blocking in value masses, with a focus on design. By working within those masses and paying close attention to the color temperature shifts, you will form a solid groundwork for the painting. Attention to subtle nuances will finalize the painting. We will discuss how the thumbnail, plein air sketch, and digital images could be used as information for a finished studio painting.
