SMALL FORMAT LANDSCAPE PAINTING
EXPLORING COLOR FROM NATURE
Three-Day Small Format Outdoor Painting Workshop with Kathleen Jacobs
FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
10am – 4pm
Grounding Stone Farm: organic blueberry farm and artist retreat.
289 Maple Street, Contoocook, NH
Maximum of 10 students
Working outside on the grounds of Grounding Stone Organic Blueberry Farm, students will investigate the natural landscape and hone observational skills to draw and paint the beautiful view before them. Drawing and painting exercises will be used to help with seeking to understand the distinctive colors that exist in this beautiful part of the world. Individual attention will be given to each student with an emphasis on finding their own interpretation of what they see. Thumbnail sketches will help students to understand a simplified sense of space to find the natural compositional structures that are there, without an over analysis of detail.
Painting will not exceed 10” x 10”. Experience in basic observational drawing as well as with oil and/or acrylic paint and/or watercolor paint will be helpful. Housing not provided but a list of inviting local inns or hotels to stay for the weekend will be provided after signing up.
