Landscape Oil Painting with Paul Bachem

 THREE weeks • Tuesday mornings
June 27, July 11 & 25, 2017, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Fee: 120m/$150 nm

Paint plein air with Paul. Hone the fundamental theories of landscape painting. Learn why your subject matter looks the way it does-the importance of being able to judge value (how light or dark an object is), hue (what color is it?) and chroma (how vivid or dull the color is). The assessment and placement of these three elements in your work is key to the realistic rendering of three-dimensional objects in the two-dimensional world of painting. (Class will be held indoors if weather is inclement.) Materials list provided at registration. 

(More weeks may be added – based on Paul’s availability – for an additional fee.)
