July 13-15 Plein Air Color Intensive.

Debra and me with her pastel

Three days of color study outside where the real color is. We studied color, values, temperatures, mixing and pigments.
We painted in the morning and worked in the studio (air conditioned) in the afternoon.on our color studies.  On the third day we switched to a larger format, painting all day.
We worked all three days on one site.  Under-painting the first day,  applying pastel the second and switching scale the third.    Most of us worked in pastel.  One student did it all in Acrylic.  I've never asked my class to stay with the same subject for 3 days.  It was a great idea.  We were able to go into depth on all aspects of color.
