Materials Fee: $0
Lois’ class will focus on developing color perception, using rich color for expressing atmosphere and light. She will encourage better control of masses and values, while showing how color also enhances design in your painting compositions. Lois’ workshop is based on her book, and her system, that teaches how to interpret light in landscape and incorporating it into your painting with amazingly quick results. Lois believes in the importance of strong and colorful starts as the foundation for great color in painting. She starts each morning and afternoon painting sessions with a demo to present specific lessons which explains exactly what to look for and how to proceed. Each consecutive class session is based on what has been previously covered; carefully building from each lesson to make the learning curve easier and concise. The workshop will concentrate on landscape painting.
Lois’ classes are open to artists of all levels, & mediums; the workshops are informal and fun. However, she likes to warn everyone to be prepared to learn a lot and work hard too!
Quote from the book, Painting the Impressionist Landscape — “The thrill and challenge of standing before nature with all of her variety and beauty, is a humbling reminder that we must ever remain a student. Each painting can bring new answers to understanding light, revealing more of nature’s secrets.”
