Painting the landscape outdoors provides many specific benefits to the artist. Some of the things you will learn how to:

• Better recognize colors and compare how they relate to each other
• Simplify your painting process and technique
• Paint more accurately in a condensed timeframe

Through this firsthand study of how light behaves in diverse situations, we will review the importance of the fundamentals of painting: design, value, color and edges. We will also explore advanced topics like brushwork and surface texture. I will demonstrate my techniques and offer hands-on instruction as we paint at beautiful locations in the Ojai Valley.

Participants will be eligible for 25% off the regular price of my instructional DVD: Steps for Successful Plein Air Painting.
