GETTING THE GREENS RIGHT
This amazing ONE DAY studio oil workshop will be a hands on day full of exercises and lecture to help you to better understand the greens in landscape painting. It will also help you when you are adding in leaves and stems in your floral still lifes. The goal of this workshop is to take a day and work with the various greens so that you will know which ones to use to get certain results, what to add depending on the time of day or season, and which ones to stay away from.
How to think about greens and the elements that affect the color will be a solid foundation that we will build upon in this day of study. Mixing work boards to help diagram the concepts that we will be discussing will greatly help you comprehend how to think and how to manage greens. Palette progressions, mixing exercises, and basic organization of your greens will help you know how and why you go to certain baselines in various situations. Much time will be allowed for individual discussion and review in a systematic rotation.
Demos and individual discussions/instruction will help each student to produce some sample boards that will help them remember the lessons of the day. No actual paintings will be done - only exercises with reference to Douglas’ paintings for lecture and demo. The various sample boards that you work through with your own paint will be invaluable studio reference as you work on future paintings. Whether a fresh new painting, or correcting some problems, this workshop will give you a better understanding, a better knowledge of the questions to ask yourself going forward with your greens!
