Earth and Air: Plein Air Painting with Will Eskridge
It is spring so let’s get outside! In this class we will be painting on location on the lawn and gardens at Lyndon House. We will cover the important fundamentals of composition, color relationships, lighting, atmospheric perspective, simplification and shape design through the use of acrylic paints. We will first spend time covering color theory, brush selection and usage, composition, and sketching. Next, we will learn about brush and palette knife techniques to increase vibrancy and texture. Finally, we will transfer what we learn from the study canvas onto the final canvas with a few secret “zingers” to make your final painting pop.
PLEASE NOTE: Students that have previously taken any of Will Eskridge’s painting classes would be ideally suited to taking this class as well; although, no experience is necessary.
