Color & Energy Workshops
Since 2011 Linda has held the official “Color and Energy” Workshop in the US and Italy.
“Color & Energy” Session: If you are still making mud when painting, this workshop is for you. Start with basic color lessons and learn to see color and understand how to simplify what you see into a painting.
Upgrade your color knowledge to create harmonious and exciting paintings whether realistic, impressionistic or abstract.
All color has energy and your paintings speak. Do you know what they are saying to your audience? Learn how to use color to move your viewer in the direction you want to bring them. Some paintings bring us up and some calm us down. Color done right energizes a whole room. Go home from this workshop with a new set of tools to help you to mix and match your colors better.
Learn to limit your value scale and simplify your block in of darks and lights by creating a small study.
Translate the study into color after working with the color wheel and color exercises to better understand mixing, temperature and translating color to value.
Demos by Linda to understand how to ….
* Mix prismatic colors and understand color theory with basic and advanced tips to create the illusion of aerial perspective.
* Expand color confidence with a variety of exercises in a study book created by Linda included in the course.
* Mix color according to value, temperature and luminosity.

Linda had been painting en plein air almost exclusively since 2002. Now, most all of her small studies are still created plein air while the large paintings are created from the smaller studies and the experience of painting out doors. As a Signature member of the International, NY and now California Plein Air Painters and now in the Pastel Society of America, she is well equipped to teach you fundamental and advanced skills both outdoors and in the studio. She came up with a way to create fast color studies that you will take out into the field to practice or use in the studio. Receive a free study booklet with the course and concentrate on making strong studies. Soon the dates for one day workshops will be available.
