Opportunity to Study with Joseph McGurl

July 29, 2014

Award winning ARC Living Master™, Joseph McGurl, will be conducting a landscape painting workshop Sept. 24, 25, and 26, 2014. It will be held at his home/studio on Amrita Island, Cape Cod. This will be a combination of demonstrations by Joe and plein air landscape painting by the participants. The class will focus on issues of concern to the landscape painter such as composition, drawing, perspective, value, color, and most importantly, light, shade, and atmosphere. A special emphasis will be given to developing a greater understanding of the physical aspects of nature which will lead to a more truthful depiction of the landscape on canvas. Participants will also learn the sight-size method of painting landscapes and the unique tools and techniques Joe has developed in order to render the elements of nature with paint on canvas.
