Event description

Description

Few destinations offer a landscape as unique as Joshua Tree National Park. Spend a day painting in beautiful Joshua Tree National Park. In this one-day class, you will focus on observation, setting an intention for the day, landscape details and painting brushstrokes full of color! Learn to create thumbnail sketches to develop a successful composition.
Janis Commentz is known for her color-intense palette and loose brush strokes. You will learn to condense vistas into simple elements to paint and to record in shadow and light. Learn to mix believable landscape colors. Develop tools to sketch and paint on canvas. The morning will be spent outdoors observing, sketching, learning what to look for in a potential landscape and blocking out a sketch on canvas. The afternoon will be spent developing your painting, using acrylic paints. The desert is a fragile environment and eco painting techniques will be used.
