Michael Chesley Johnson- Pastel Plein Air Painting Workshop
Join nationally-known artist Michael Chesley Johnson as he shows you how to paint the landscape on-location in pastel. In this plein air workshop, you'll start in the studio with basic principles, and then you'll move to the field where Michael will demonstrate his method for "capturing the moment" quickly and efficiently but without sacrificing mood and magic. Michael will show you how focusing on just value and color temperature in an initial "bestguess" will get you started quickly, leaving plenty of time for making adjustments at a more leisurely pace. After the demonstration, you'll have the opportunity to practice your new skills with Michael going from easel to easel offering plenty of personal help. Each day will offer at least one demo plus critiques of student work done in the workshop.
