Terry Miura-Plein Air Strategies
In this three day workshop, we will investigate the process of painting the landscape en plein air.
Painting directly from observation is a difficult task under the best of circumstances. When we are outdoors, the problems are amplified due to uncontrollable factors such as the weather and the moving light. The overwhelming amount of information that needs to be analyzed and translated into a visual language is enough to drive any student to want to throw in the towel. Sound familiar?
I believe that there are logical ways to solve most problems in painting, but first, you have to recognize what the problems are. By breaking down the process into smaller, manageable problems, solutions present themselves.
We will work on finding logical ways to solve problems of design, value structure, color, and edges, through demos and field studies.
If you find that you get overwhelmed, confused, and frustrated when painting the landscape, or if you simply want to get better at solving visual problems in a logical way, this workshop will help you get to the next level!
Tuition includes your very own copy of my 80 page full-color, fully illustrated companion textbook, En Plein Air; Painting Wisdom I’ve Collected the Hard Way (So You Don’t Have To)
