Sam Paonessa Art Workshop Oct 21 2017
Impressionistic Landscape & Plein Air Opportunity
Sam has recently returned from a painting tour of Tuscany. Enjoy the day enlightened by his new inspirations.
The workshop will start out with a short demo, followed by a question and answer session. The rest of the day will be spent painting outdoors on the charming property of Mount Mary retreat, with one-on-one instruction surrounded by scenic woods, rolling grass hills, hidden ponds and forest trails. Instruction will address painting principles such as tone, colour, form, texture and composition. Demonstrations, individual attention and encouragement will increase the student’s creative confidence and style, while being briefly introduced to painting essentials including composition, perspective, landmark representation, brush techniques, colour mixing, contrast and sense of depth. Students can choose to paint in either oils or acrylics.
This workshop is for the artist with some painting experience. Some review of the basic principles of painting will be covered while various techniques are suggested and explored. This is an outdoor/studio workshop in which students work on their own pieces, at their own pace with direction and feedback from the instructor.
If the weather is inclement, we will make use of the studio, where students can work on their personally chosen subjects.
