Workshop: Color and Atmospheric Perspective

Dates: Saturday and Sunday this summer at the Santa Cruz Art League. Exact dates to be set soon.

 

This workshop will focus on the use of color to create a harmonious painting and use of atmospheric perspective to create depth in your painting.

 

We will meet each morning at the classroom beside the Santa Cruz Art League’s art Gallery, where the workshop will be held. You will need all your painting supplies on the first day – including easel, paints, brushes, cleanup supplies, etc. A full materials list will be sent as soon as you are registered.

Description

Emphasis will be on color and atmospheric perspective. Among the topics to be discussed are the relationships of colors on a color wheel, the major qualities of color, how to achieve color harmony, how to “break” a color, color as an important element in composition, what happens to color as the landscape recedes, what happens to color under different lighting conditions, and how to mix colors that appear natural to the landscape.

This class is intended to expand your knowledge base for creating a strong painting.

Don’t forget to pack a lunch; we’ll take a break each mid day.
