Topics covered will include locating your composition, seeing color and value in the landscape, creating atmosphere and aerial perspective, evaluating light sources and their effects on the landscape. We will take
advantage of the proximity of campus buildings to include working with architecture and man-made elements in the landscape. A studio component will rely on field studies, memory and sketchbooking. Class will consist of demos, discussion, plein air and studio work, and formal critiques. Daily instruction and critiques at your easel.

This workshop is for intermediate level and above.
