Beginner Plein Air (Outdoor) Painting: Brush & Palette Knife Technique

With professional painter, Melanie Barash Levitt.

In this weekend outdoor oil painting workshop, (acrylics can also be used but I suggest open acrylics) students will enjoy the process of setting up an easel outdoors and painting the beautiful White Mtn. landscape “en plein air.” We will meet at a different locations each day and will focus on the brush the first day and the palette knife the second day. Through demonstration and individual attention in oils, students will learn how to distill the important information from their observation and translate it onto the canvas. Melanie will address the importance of sketching, how to create depth & light in a painting, composition, color mixing, and other tips for painting outdoors.
