Upcoming Workshop: Liz Haywood-Sullivan Returns to Santa Barbara
Explore both studio and plein air pastel painting with instruction by internationally acclaimed artist, instructor, and author Liz Haywood-Sullivan. This intensive workshop starts with one day in the studio where we will cover using her Good Bones structural system to painting and discussion of portability with pastels. The next two days we move into the inspiring landscapes of the Santa Barbara coastal region. Our daily plein air studies will involve direct observation of the landscape with instruction in choosing your subject and composition from life. We will cover correct drawing, value choices, aerial perspective, sky and water valuework, and how to make underpainting work for you. Importantly, we will work on how to see more accurately and rely less on the camera. Each day will start with a demonstration and there will be plenty of individual instruction at your easels.
