This one week class will be taught using acrylic as well as oil paint. The advantages in using acrylic paints are:
1) easy clean up with water
2) no toxic painting materials
3) quick drying time that allows for instant correction of
shape, color and value.
Acrylic painting allows for a variety of techniques. If used thinly it takes on the appearance of watercolor. If applied thick it can appear to look like oil paint.
The beautiful grounds and surrounding panorama views
of the Gut Burig Country Estate will serve as the ideal
subject matter for this workshop.
Students will expand their skills for the ultimate experience of “Plein Air Painting”. Each day of this weeklong master class will be spent painting direct in varying light and atmospheric conditions.
Students will also photograph the scene that they are painting to do follow-up glazing and layering of paint later in the week in the studio.
All of the demonstrations will build the students’ knowledge of the underlying theory of impressionism and broken color.
