About This Activity

Plein Air Painting with Skip Whitcomb
Intermediate to Advanced Workshop

 May 16 - 19, 2013 (4 days)

Explore the beautiful Sedona landscape with a master artist! This workshop is designed to introduce orchestration of the landscape for strong personal statements. We have no obligation to copy what is before us, that is what the camera does. Concentration will be on the intellectual process of interpreting landscape to 'fit' your motive. Although this is an outdoor workshop, much of the discussion will apply equally to studio work and procedures. We'll work on defining and developing what constitutes a strong pictorial concept and selection of only those elements in the landscape which support that end. The ultimate goal is to help you think and create on a higher plane. The small class size is intended to encourage enthusiastic discussions and questions dealing with our profession today - practical, as well as intellectual. Intermediate to advanced pastel artists are also welcome but Skip will be demonstrating in oils. Portable easel and transportation required.
