Plein air or Color Workshops in Sarasota, FL

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

“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.

Two or two and a half days working with Color in the studio.

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.

During a demo by Linda, learn to see the patterns of light and dark in order to capture the colors in light and shadow.

Take the new knowledge you gathered from the workshop and paint a still life focusing on keeping your colors clean while capturing the light.

Coming in the fall…one day Plein air Sessions:

Beginning at 10am, this segment will be outside unless it it is raining. We have a outside view from in the studio.

* Review of the 6 steps to make a stronger painting before you start your painting and use the provided study book.

* Understand how value and color plays a role in atmospheric perspective to increase depth in  your paintings

* Add energy to your work by understanding color saturation's effect on our mood and energy.

*How to capture trees with movement and volume.

* Learn how skies reflect onto the leaves of trees and how to capture the growth of trees & the nuances in the change of temperature affecting the colors of the trunks.

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 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.
