FROM RIVERSIDE- Painting Outdoors, with John Budicin
Oil will be the medium
All levels from beginner to professional are welcome
Individual attention to students
Portable easel and transportations needed
Painting outdoors is challenging. Learning what to select and what to omit to make a strong design and statement is the goal. We are not obligated to paint everything as it is; a camera does a better job.
The emphasis will be on simplifying and organizing shapes.
Beginning with a simple statement we capture the shapes, values, and light source quickly and from there we will work toward a finished work. Demonstrations supplemented with visual aids will help to clarify the key elements discussed.
What is important to me, as a teacher, is to share whatever knowledge I have with my students. I have no secrets about the way I paint, my philosophy, or my approach. I want to give each student all I can through personal attention, direction, and group discussions. There are no shortcuts in reaching our goals, just hard work and determination.
