All Prima Painting with David Lussier, Oct 18-20

With Award winning painter, David Lussier

Learn to  control the myriad of colors your eyes see when face to face with the autumn landscape in this three day workshop. The White Mountains offer up some of the most breathtaking landscapes in New England. David will begin each day with a demonstration and discussion of his working methods. In an orderly step by step process, he will show you how to simplify shapes, color and value to achieve a successful painting.  He will share his  knowledge of how the bright autumn colors of red, yellow and orange recede into the distance. This is important in being able to give your painting the sense that it is infused with light and atmosphere.

Fri, Sat, & Sun, Oct 18-20, 9am-4pm,  $400  

David Lussier is an award winning contemporary impressionist and nationally recognized plein air painter and workshop instructor. He is a painter in the purist sense of the word. In his poetic and intimate oil landscapes he strives to capture the essence and sense of place of his subject matter. His use of bold broad brushwork brings the surfaces to life and begs the viewer to return for a second look. David started his career as a commercially trained illustrator, but he quickly realized that his passion was in the fine arts. He has been painting professionally for more than twenty five years, has garnered more than 75 prizes for his work and is in numerous private and corporate collections throughout the United States. His work has been featured in many art journals and he is a professional member of some of the finest art associations and groups in the country. David is also an official U.S. Open artist for the United States Golf Association. Four of his paintings hang in the permanent collection of the USGA Museum in Far Hills New Jersey.
