You will learn the secret of layering to create brilliant colors. The objective of this workshop is to learn to see and transfer newly found passion into your own expressive art.
Nancy Explains: I love painting outside and sharing this amazing experience with others. Mother nature is the very best teacher in which we all can learn from. Painting outside offer a visual enrichment we can not make up. As an instructor with great patience and yet passion, I provide guidance on how to capture the landscape with pigment. Whether you are a beginning artist or has many years of experience, I will give you the tools you need to simplify what you see and break it up to workable shapes and values. We will build on those strong foundations and learn about pastel application, color harmony, color temperature and mood to help express yourself fully and paint what you really feel.
