Description

The Power Of Shape In 'En Plein Air' Painting

with Jeff Markowsky


Learn to paint exciting impressionist landscapes with world accliamed artist Jeff Markowsky in Majorca, Spain -the island of art and a hub for creativity in the Meditarrian Sea, Europe.

This five day workshop is designed to help enthusiasts, art students and dedicated painters to develop skills in color, form and media to create exciting landscape painting en plein air (in the open air) in the tradition of the impressonist painters.

Learn the importance of the initial design of the dominant shapes in a painting before paint is even applied to the canvas. Develop spatial arrangement skills as you learn to construct nuanced form with an understanding the dynamics of large to middle to small ranged shapes. The importance of drawing is discussed, practiced and emphasized.
Students will produce successful small plein air sketches in oil derived from Notan studies.

Based in Pollenca, Majorca this beautiful old town is a hub for art and design nestled in the foot hills of the mountains of Majorca. As an attendee you will be staying in a beautufil hotel and each day we will visit a different location to paint the most exciting landscapes featuring seascapes, townscapes and landscapes as we paint under azure skies in the most beautiful of the Baleric Islands.

Some experience with painting in oils is required.
