Hayden Hall Level A Studio, Wednesday and Thursday 1-4 pm
Intro to Oil Painting–Landscape and Atmospheric Perspective
What do we see when we look out at a mountain scape? Distance and atmosphere. At such distances local color, the color things are (grass green etc) become less important, and what becomes more important is the color of light. We will be painting a mountain scape in oil, and in the process learning about value and color.
Wednesday Feb 24 1-4 pm: Value: Atmospheric Perspective. Warm up: thumbnail sketches, composition and notan. We will begin our paintings by blocking in values for mountains, using deeper values at the bottom in the foreground and fading due to atmospheric perspective as we near the horizon.
Thursday Feb 25 1-4 pm: The colors of light. Warm up: rainbow swatches. The second day we will glaze over with bright color, the color of the sky.
