HOW TO “SIMPLY” PLEIN AIR PAINT
If you are wanting to plein air paint, but not sure how to go about it, this ONE-DAY workshop is the one for you! Douglas makes it very simple and is logical about the “how to” and overviews what to think about when setting out to paint. Douglas will overview his palette and concepts his work entails. Students will mix paints and learn to mix basic strings of color to help comprehend the preparation/set up to prepare to paint out-of-doors. Douglas will help students pare down equipment so only the necessities are taken out-of-doors. Students will work on small canvases and the emphasis will be on capturing the time of day, atmosphere and geographical elements as we paint something interesting on the grounds of the Center for the Arts Bonita/Old 41 location. This one day introduction to Plein Air Workshop will help you become more comfortable with the process of painting out-of-doors, and give you a better understanding of the supplies that you will need going forward.
Class supply list:
Please prime all canvas with a thin coat of thinned down Cad Red light and Permalba white to make a pink or light red tone on canvas. Douglas has a “suitcase of supplies” he brings along, it includes some recommended books, and some supplies in case a few students need a few items that are forgotten.
Douglas also will offer a “BASIC PAINT KIT” (while supplies last) which includes all the basic oils, brushes, palette knife, palette and canvas panels and medium for those who do not want to buy these supplies individually. You would need to bring some paper towels and rubber gloves. Price $150., while supplies last. Please reserve your kit when registering.
