Weekly Classes, Adults
This is a 2-day workshop that gives you an option of taking one or both days. Painting on location will soon become a favorite. Our home base will be the Plymouth Arts Center. Painting locations will be near the PAC and disclosed closer to the start of the workshop date. “I am happiest when my paintings reflect….” fill in the blank. For me, the answer is emotion. But first, we need those big shapes, and a solid foundation. My demonstrations will be in oil paint. Let us have fun painting a piece of ourselves in the house, tree, person walking down the street or the countless other possibilities. Each journey is unique. Some of you have been enjoying the road awhile while others have found a new and exciting destination of Plein Air painting. We begin our journey learning how to see the big shapes and local colors to make a clear statement. Building with bold lights and darks and build interesting brushwork. You will receive personal instruction at your easel. All mediums are welcome. Topics Covered: Composition, Color, Value, Drawing, Perspective, & Tips and tricks For a supply list, schedule, and more detail, please check out www.plymoutharts.com or www.loriberinger.com.
