PLEIN AIR PAINTING WITH OILS WORKSHOP w/ Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park
This workshop will help you to simplify and organize what you see and go on to create satisfying, dynamic paintings.

Painting the landscape from life is thrilling and can be challenging as well. The world is filled with an infinite variety of color and value and an overwhelming amount of detail. Patterns of shadow and light are constantly changing. This workshop will help you to simplify and organize what you see, and go on to create satisfying, dynamic paintings with strong, logical dark and light patterns. Topics include composition, focal point, perspective, value (dark and light), underpainting, painting ala prima (layering wet paint without making mud), color theory, mixing paint, and more. The Saturday session will start with a demo painting as Jessica explains her step-by-step method. Students will be given individual feedback and guidance. Some previous painting experience is advised.
