Description

FOR PAWA MEMBERS, to become a PAWA member or to learn more, go to PleinAirWashington.com

As a representational painter Mitch believes that painting is a celebration of life and the beauty that surrounds us. He is devoted to the traditions of the late 19th century artists who looked to the figure and nature for inspiration regarding light, color, and design. Seeking out this inspiration, Mitch works directly from life to capture the qualities and nuances of natural light and color harmony. He has a strong conviction that great artistic communication depends on good draftsmanship, design and vision. His artistic desire is to “portray a positive visual statement and hope the viewer will experience what I see and in some sense be inspired, uplifted, or moved by my painting, whether it is of a small intimate setting or a grandiose subject.”

PAWA HAS SCHEDULED A THREE-DAYWORKSHOP

Members have a unique opportunity to study under the instruction of Mitch Baird (If there is room for a non-member, contact Jane Wallis to be on the list. There may be an increase in price)

Learning to “See” Your Subject

Mitch Baird writes, “What does the act of ‘seeing’ mean for an artist? It is a crucial skill. In this workshop, we will explore the specifics of learning to ‘see’ the subject, interpreting the visual elements, and executing it all onto canvas. We will cover seeing light, form, atmosphere and space. The fundamental principles of painting – composition, drawing, value, color and edges will also be stressed. There will be plenty of demos covering these concepts. We will work from our plein air studies and or photography in the studio. Individual attention will be a high priority as well as laughs and a lot of enthusiasm.”

WHEN: December 2-4 TIME: 9:00 AM to 4:00 or 5:00 PM with 1hour lunch break 12-1PM

Morning Demo followed by lunch break – Afternoon will work with students until end of class and critiques, if desired.
