HSC Intensive: Working Plein Air
15 Apr 2018 - 15 Apr 2018
Work with artist Nicole Kelly in a workshop which focuses on a practical approach to drawing and painting en plein air.
The workshop will begin with a discussion of what is meant by en plein air, referring to artists who work in this genre, both historical and contemporary. Students will then learn about composition, palette setup, colour mixing and approaches to applying paint and mark making.
Participants will produce a small to medium scale painting while working en plein air, and may work in either acrylic or oil paint.
