On day one, we will cover composition, value, color mixing and paint application creating the initial “block-in”, then on day two thicker paint and individual mark making will be applied. Lastly, detail and that final sparkle that will bring your painting to life. Oils or water soluble oils. Beginner to Intermediate levels.

 PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP WITH SAM D’AMBRUOSO

 

 

 

 

 

The instructor will do an  oil painting demonstration on the grounds of Wickham Park each morning, Saturday, October 3 as well as Sunday, October 4.   The objective is to have each student understand the 6 steps to a better landscape painting. Students will set up their own easels and start painting during or after the demo. Throughout the day, there will be plenty of one-on-one drawing and painting instruction.  Students will be concentrating on composition in art, what makes a compelling painting, color theory and color mixing, and understanding how to develop better values in your painting, how to handle the all-important shadow edges, how to develop textures in oil paintings, and why scale of the object or landscape really tells the story of the painting. 
In addition to your painting gear, please bring your facemask and personal hand sanitizer. We will be working outdoors and practicing social distancing. The park has restroom facilities that are maintained hourly. Also, bring a sack lunch and drink.  We will break for a short lunch period each day. Wickham Park is a privately operated park and requires a parking fee of $7 on weekends.

Saturday and Sunday, October 3rd and 4th, 10:30 to 4:30 pm
