The Plein Air Landscape:
"Practical Advice to Better Your Landscape Painting;
How Plein Air Informs Studio Work"
3 days Oct 16-18, 2013
Joshua Been will clarify the mystery of creating effective illusions in the context of plein air painting. Through demonstration and one-on-one attention, the goal will be to comprehend the relationships between VALUES, the importance of SHAPE and design and how to see and execute differences in EDGES. Different ways to apply the paint will result in an effective juxtaposition of TEXTURES. Through this four-pronged approach, students will learn to organize visual information and to build the illusion of space and light. All levels of plein air painters will be able to benefit from this workshop.
The workshop enrollment will be limited to 10 students.
Payment Options: Students may pay in full or choose the payment-plan option during registration. The payment plan requires a non-refundable $100 deposit with the balance due 30 days before the first day of the workshop.
About Joshua Been
Born in 1974 Joshua Been had no shortage of outdoor adventures that cultivated his appreciation for the natural world. Drawing since he could manage a pencil, he was captivated by animation and cartooning. This interest remained with him throughout high school and an active duty enlistment in the US Army. Been then went on to pursue his BA in Fine Art at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. As a Magna Cum Laude graduate from this small liberal arts college, Been found interest in more than just art classes. He was active in theatre and performing arts, while studying Earth Sciences as well. This interdisciplinary foundation is evident in the intricacies and truthful fascination of his landscape as well as his figurative work.
After graduation, Been relocated to the Los Angeles area where he worked for several years in the entertainment industry as a Character Animator and Visual Development Artist. Cartoon Network, and Disney TV were some of the studios where he found work. It wasn?t long, however, before Been craved a more liberating artform, and enrolled in some figure painting classes at the California Art Institute. While simplifying his life in order to pursue the more nomadic life of a painter, Been moved back to his native land in Colorado. For a short time in order to get his feet on the ground in CO, Been taught art and design to inmates at the Buena Vista Correctional Facility. He now lives and paints in Salida, a place known as the 'Heart of the Rockies'. www.joshuabeen.com
