AUGUST

Expressive, Luminous Paintings with Impressionistic Brushwork 

with Betty Carr, AISM, APAP, KA

August 29-31, 9 am – 4 pm

Mountain Artists Guild, 228 N Alarcon St., Prescott, AZ 86301

For beginners with some experience to advanced levels

 

Capturing the beauty of light through studying temperatures of light and shadow, visual movement and value/color relationships will be demonstrated in this workshop. As a Master in the American Impressionist Society (AISM), Carr will be emphasizing the "how-tos" in achieving dynamic, impressionistic paintings using painterly brushwork in watercolor and oil. Massing, organizing and composing darks and lights, importance of value sketches, and atmospheric and linear perspective will be covered.

 

Each morning starts with a demonstration and discussion on simple proven techniques for successful, beautiful paintings. We will "warm up" by painting a variety of brush techniques which will apply later to our future paintings. Painting rocks, foliage, water clouds, etc. in striking light will be introduced. Individual and group critiques will take place throughout the workshop.

 

Photos will be a source of inspiration for our work. We will learn how to combine photos to create that one of a kind painting incorporating light and shadow. Bring your favorite landscape and floral still life photos with great lighting for designing your compositions.

 

Through individual instruction, observing daily demonstrations/critiques and producing numerous studies and paintings, students will develop a personal style in their artistic directions as well as gaining inspiration and enthusiasm for future paintings.

Six Step Thought Process

Plein Air Workshop in Sedona with Cody DeLong, Instructor

Wednesday, August 12,  8 am – 3 pm

Red Rock Crossing (Crescent Moon State Park Picnic Site)

Is painting En Plein Air something you love to do or want to explore?  Come and paint with fellow artists as we learn from Cody DeLong. This one day plein air workshop is designed to give you the tools to think like a pro when painting on your own. Knowing the right questions to ask yourself, in the right order, is the greatest single thing you can do to take your work to the next level. Cody will be demonstrating in oil. Attending artists can work in the medium of their choice and still benefit from the instruction.

 

ABOUT Cody DeLong:

Cody has been working in oils for about 25 years and selling his  work in Jerome, AZ for nearly 20 years. Today, he is a nationally recognized artist featured in numerous magazines including “Southwest Art” and is invited to several national events each year. He has won awards at these events.  Cody says “The real reason I paint though, is simply because I love it. Creativity is a delicate mistress. I love the dance between passion and skill, between knowledge and learning. I think it shows in my work.”

OCTOBER

Plein Air to Studio  

with Julie Gilbert Pollard

October 23-25, 2020,  9 am – 4 pm

Watson Lake and Mountain Artists Guild studio, 228 N. Alarcon, Prescott

Demos in Watercolor and Oil

 

 This workshop is dedicated to “light” plein air work - a day of enjoying beautiful Watson Lake with no pressure! The first day will be spent sketching and 'light' plein air painting and “photo-sketching” (using minimal plein air equipment – suggested supply list will be provided) at Watson Lake with follow-up studio painting on the following 2 days. (In case of inclement weather, reference photos will be supplied, or you may use your own.) You are of course welcome to bring any plein air setup you like, but a minimal set-up is encouraged to keep you mobile! The plein air demos for oil will be a unique technique of doing the block-in in watercolor, a more mobile medium. 

 

You will be encouraged to find several scenes you would like to spend time with in the studio and doing simple studies for that purpose - or starting a painting in a prescribed manner that lends itself to a studio finishing. There will be lessons that lead you through a process of simplifying a scene and maintaining the “plein air feel” when returning to the studio. If you decide to stay with one composition and develop it further, the choice is yours. 

 

The Watson Lake area and the trail from the boat ramp are perfect for a relaxing day of walking and sketching. The participant should be able to do a bit of walking on the trail but the scenery at the boat ramp is beautiful and quite varied – one could be content to stay there. If you take the trail a bit farther back it gets even better - and it’s always fun to seek out a scene that might be just around the bend. 

 

There will be demos, instruction at all levels as needed, critique and lots of painting time. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all!
