Painting What You See, Simplifying Plein Air Painting

With basic “tools,” producing an accurate depiction of what’s in front of you is easy! (No, it’s hard, but achievable!) and in this workshop, Matt Chinian will introduce the “sight-size” method, a basic concept in observational realism and how to apply it to painting landscapes. Matt Chinian will do a short demo, then we will spread out on the SAW campus and paint.

We will work on composition, value, color and use of mass and line in painting. Color mixing and paint application will also be introduced. Participants should have their own materials, brushes, easel, etc...
