Painting plein air in the orchard teaches the art of observation within the morning light of the Chimacum valley. Students will learn the foundations of painting realism by going into the Finnriver apple orchard and encountering the morning light to discuss its essential elements and how to paint the illusion of light. Each class will break down the different elements of 'realism' into their essential parts. As the class progresses, students will spend more time actually painting with guided personal instruction. By class finish, students will have a firm understanding of the essential elements needed to paint realism and the ability to further develop those skills on their own. This class is taught using gouache paint and students are encouraged to follow along in that same medium or bring the medium of student's choice. A material list for those looking to learn about gouache will be provided.
20 person cap for the class.
