Composing from Field Sketches

May 31 - Jun. 3, 2012

Medium: Oil, Pastel, or Watercolor

Level: All Levels
3-Day Studio/Outdoor Class

This 3-day workshop will focus on composing paintings with field sketches.  It is open to painters all levels who work in oil, pastel or watercolor.  Participants will visit several sites in the beautiful Catskill area to gather sketch references for compositional work in the studio.  Additionally, you will use the sketching process to work on simplifying a scene, make creative decisions and stick with those decisions while painting on location.  The workshop will feature demonstrations and individual instruction on technique.

Elizabeth (Betsy) Apgar-Smith is an award-winning painter who works and teaches in oil, pastel and watercolor.  Her work has been included in many books on painting technique. She maintains a studio and gallery in Schoharie, NY.
