This class will help you take your painting process outdoors!
It's always more difficult to paint from life, especially when people are milling around you; but your work will be more lively and free when learn to take your skills on the road. We will be working outdoors, weather permitting, in local settings chosen in advance by the artist.* Working in either acrylic or oil, students will bring portable painting equipment, which Angela will help you figure out. The great thing about painting on location is that you don't need much, and you are forced to cut back on your supplies. Most locations are close enough to walk to; some may require a short drive.
During inclement weather we will be working from photos in the studio, and Angela will show you how you can creatively edit the scene, to take what you know about photography, along with the tools she will give you for design, and use it to your benefit when translating that photo into a rich painting.
