Audrey McGlashan leads 6 outdoor painting sessions in her observant and generous style. This live course sets up at Rockland locations, or heads indoors if the weather turns. Let’s develop our eye for color and bring out our subjects through creative use of color. This will involve some mixing of color, then layering on color to create intensity. We’ll explore ocean and skies, and work on still life paintings that involve the fruits of summer (and other objects you can bring from home). If you are interested in painting people we can paint each other (with agreement as subjects). We will experience the changing of light as we work outdoors; that, too, will be another area we will learn how to manage.
Discussion and questions are welcome. Bring a folding chair, a board, a jar of water for brushes, your painting tote and sun hat/windbreaker/polar fleece to match the weather. A suggested supply list is available below.
As an optional add-on, students can choose to continue with lunch after class at one of the many area eateries, or a cultural destination like CMCA or downtown galleries. On a prescribed day, Audrey plans to share her observations during a tour of the Farnsworth Art Museum for those who can attend.
