Color & Energy Workshops

Since 2011 Linda has held the official “Color and Energy” Workshop in the US, Italy and soon Greece.

Some workshops are 1, 2 or 2 1/2 days and are held outside (en Plein Air) and some are inside in a class.

“Color & Energy” Session: basic and advanced color lessons to upgrade your color knowledge to create harmonious and exciting paintings whether realistic, impressionistic or abstract.   All color has energy so learn how the colors you choose affect the viewer.

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 atmospheric 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.

* Paint a landscape from a photo reference that looks as if you painted it en plein air. Learn how photos lie.

*Keep some of the abstracted areas in your painting for a more modern approach to landscapes.

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.
