Five Day Plein Air Workshop With Joe Paquet
This workshop in oils is for artists of all levels.
This workshop will introduce you to the Prismatic Palette and its use in helping you capture the myriad light effects you are faced with when painting en plein air. Correct use of the Prismatic Palette will help you judge values, using warm and cool tones to bring things forward and to push things back, and to depict light and shade, and to describe the type and time of day.
The first day, Joe will lecture and paint a demo explaining his process. The rest of the week will be spent outdoors painting Joe’s favorite Island locations. Students can expect to paint two images daily--one in the morning, and another in the afternoon.
Key factors such as rhythmic-connected drawing, underpainting, creating a profound sense of atmosphere and effectively using greens will be discussed. Joe will work with you individually at your easel to address compositional and color issues, and will provide careful critique.
