The Joy of Plein Air Painting
We will discuss time-tested techniques used by masters over the centuries – “Chiaroscuro” (lights & darks), “Diaphanous” (sheets of atmosphere for example, as seen in the distance) and the “Golden Ratio” (composition) – all three play a vital role in our outside “studio.” One of the joys of outside painting is that it engages the senses, such as sound (hearing birds in the air), touch (feeling a gentle breeze), smell (fragrant trees in blossom, flowers, fields, or the ocean air) and of course sight. We will also employ little techniques that have proven to be helpful over the years, used by artists around the world. So let us just enjoy the moments and satisfaction of outside painting . . .
