This class is for both beginners and advanced students. Hilda Neily will take the class through the study of color beginning with simple arrangements of colored blocks on a tabletop outside in the sun or inside in the studio if it’s raining. Drawing is not stressed. We will concentrate on the simple color note studies for 2 days . We will go out and paint some structures in the landscape the third day . We will see how to concentrate on the big masses of lights and deep notes of color that make up a strong landscape painting. We will study all elements of landscape painting and or still life on the following days as weather permits.
