SEEING EXPRESSIVE COLOR for ALL MEDIUMS with Susan Nicholas Gephart, Fri & Sat 9:30-4pm
Discover how to see beyond the obvious within the landscape, and use expressive color to capture the essence of mood and atmosphere in sky, water, and more. Whether you work in pastel, oil, watercolor, or acrylic, you will learn to see the depth of color and create a unique and personally expressive painting.
Skilled in both pastel and oil, Susan is a seasoned plein air and studio painter that will lead you to your personal color expression in the medium of your choice. Each day will begin with a short demo focusing on methods that will aid in color expression. One afternoon session will deal with “How to prepare for Plein Air painting in the field”.
The use of underpainting and color mixing will be explored in both pastel and oil. “Thumbnail Sketches” and their importance in supporting strong compositions and values within color, will help you “Target Focus” on what inspires you in the landscape. There will be personal time at your easel following the morning demo, with support and attention given at each artist’s easel. Susan requires each student to contact her prior to this workshop!
