"Moving Water: Rivers, Streams and Waterfalls"
This workshop offers an overview of considerations when painting moving water in a plein air setting. A demonstration will address techniques used to capture the ever-changing, complex subject of moving water. Participants will then have an opportunity to practice newly learned insights by starting a painting of their own. The course will cover the following topics:
· Scene selection
· Value considerations
· Challenges and tips associated with painting moving water on location
What to bring:
- Sketch/notepad and pencil
- Painting supplies
- The course will be taught in oils; however alternate media are welcome
- Preferred paint palette: include a warm and cool version of each of the primary colors, white, black, alizarine crimson
- A panel or stretched canvas (I prefer linen) toned with a slightly warm color. I use a thin layer of raw umber mixed with a touch of white.
