Event description

Description

Spend a day painting in beautiful Joshua Tree NP. Few destinations offer a landscape as unique as Joshua Tree National Park. In this one-day class, you will focus on observation, setting an intention for the day, and learning the process of acrylic landscape painting. Janis Commentz is known for her color-intense palette and loose brush strokes. The morning will begin with basic instruction on the process and introduction to materials. Topics include laying out your palette, color mixing, translating your observations into a painted image, tips for lights and darks, and planning a successful composition. Participants will move outdoors to observe, sketch, and learn what to look for in a potential landscape. Both group and individual instruction will help you develop your painting and explore new techniques.

The desert is a fragile environment and eco painting techniques will be used.
