ArtWaves. 1345A Hwy 102 Town Hill Bar Harbor
A plein air painting workshop that concentrates on creating a method to “Catch the Light” and the essence of the day. Students work on various forms of compositional planning, including notan, value studies, directional lines and color proportion swatches. Learning to use these tools, will help artists capture the essence of the scene before the light shifts.
Students will work at two different locations. Through careful planning and a clear focus students will be able to quickly create a successful painting outdoors in the shifting light.
All media are welcome, oils, acrylics, drawing and watercolor.
Students should be comfortable with the medium they choose. The instructor is mainly versed in watercolor and water soluble oils.
