This class is for both beginners and advanced students. Hilda Neily and Glenna Hartwell 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.
