Event description

Description

Come paint the summer small-town landscape with Charlie Hunter, one of the most celebrated plein-air paintings in the country! A three-day immersion in drawing, painting and on-the-fly composition decisions. Why do we choose to paint what we do? How do we engage the viewer? Why is drawing such an important part of a regular painting practice? In this fast-moving, wide-ranging, and entertaining workshop, Charlie Hunter will lead a class focusing on his unique approach to painting and sense of composition. Hunter will start with a morning painting using his limited palette, demonstating a carefully-observed study in values. The class will then concentrate on their own paintings. At the end of each day, participants gather with their work for spirited critique and discussion.

Hopefully we will have three days of good weather, however, should rain threaten, we need a contingency plan. If class participants have a sketchbook with plein-air field sketches, please bring it as that is ideal. If you do not, bring a few photographs (though Hunter doesn't really approve. If you want to drive him really batty, bring an iPad and try drawing from that; he dares you).
