Master Workshop with Graziano - PLEIN AIR PAINTING
Study oil painting en plein air with Dan Graziano in a 2-Day Master Workshop at the Visual Arts Center (VAC). This workshop will focus on painting outdoors from life (En Plein air) along with basic art fundamentals of color temperature, value, edges, composition and paint handling. We will also discuss how to develop greater skills of observation, simplification, identification of a strong focal point and quickly painting “wet on wet” (alla prima) to translate what you see and experience into strong paintings. Participants will paint every day at a different location. Each day begins with a brief demonstration by Dan followed by everyone painting, with plenty of one-on-one instruction. The class is structured for beginners to advanced painters.
