Betty Carr
Seeing the Light

August 1 - 7, 2010

Medium: Oil or Watercolor
Level: All Levels
5-Day Outdoor and Indoor Class

Betty Carr’s energetic style and enthusiasm is apparent in her paintings and her teaching. She is the author of a number of books, the latest being Seeing the Light: An Artist’s Guide.

This workshop covers linear as well as atmospheric perspective, drawing basics and aspects of painting light. How to examine colors, values and temperatures of light and shadow, its luminosity, is demonstrated. Regardless of style, sound design and compositional aspects in using light is discovered in order to direct the eye. You will examine the “how to’s” of massing and organizing darks and lights, value and color relationships, edges, direction and other important design applications in creating dynamic paintings. Carr also demonstrates who to work from field sketches, value studies and a combination of photos. You are encouraged to bring in paintings and drawings for critique for open discussion, and your favorite photos, especially ones saved for that “challenging” painting. Come prepared to have fun!
