Construction of a Lanscape: en plein aire

with Robert Lenz

The most beautiful and memorable landscape pictures from the past and the present have been constructed with the same fundamental art. We will learn these steps; from composition to detail and how Inness, among other masters taught his students how to SEE! Be prepared to paint small size canvases (9 x 12, 11 x 14, 12 x 16) and bring your usual bag of supplies. Later in the class, if circumstances allow, we will transfer one of your small pictures to a larger canvas. I will send each student a recommended palette once the class is set.
