Two Day Plein Air Intensive
with Palette Knife Painter Roger Alderman
Saturday and Sunday, November 1 & 2, 2014
9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Learn to paint in a loose, bright and bold style in this 3-day plein air intensive workshop. Learn the fundamentals of plein air painting while creating an oil painting that expresses your inner passion and joy de verve. The emphasis will be on creating an expressive, well-composed painting, rich with color and bravura paint application.

This course is designed for any skill level from beginning to advanced. Painting on location in the morning we will learn how to simplify and create a compelling composition. Learn how to capture light with a simplified outdoor palette by understanding the basics of color mixing, value and temperature control. In the afternoon, we return to the studio to refine our plein air paintings or develop a larger painting.

Paint application is important in the workshop and you will learn how to use a palette knife in developing your style. Each day begins with a painting demonstration. Expect to create a painting a day with lots of personal instruction at the easel. Come prepared to have fun and discover the joy of making art.  Go here for the flyer on this class.
