Fall plein air painting workshops- classes

Plein Air Painting
for the outdoor enthusiast

held on the Niagara Escarpment, a Unesco world biosphere reserve

 October, thinking of you, oil on canvas, 18x18in, sold, copyright Jan Yates

Paint the warm sienna's and saturated purples and yellows of Fall fields, orchards and vineyards in this painters' paradise. For those preferring structures, there are barns, fences and wonderful fallen down sheds for inspiration.

Painting outdoors improves your skills when working back in the studio. It is a great exercise to enhance observation and make sound choices when it comes to composition.
Learn about packing light, preparing surfaces, simplifying your pallet, mark making, brushwork, paint handling, colour / value relationships and how to work quickly in changing light and temperature. Painting tools as well as mediums will be addressed. You will be responsible for your own supplies and a list is provided upon registration.  Some outdoor easels are available.

Ongoing Tuesdays and /or every other  Saturday throughout September and early October.
