Field Studies and Studio Painting in the beautiful Hudson River Valley
This studio class will focus on the development of dynamic, sensitive and believable landscape paintings, using photos and field studies. Susan provides daily demos to illustrate ideas and concepts about composition, simplification, and creating effective color relationships. “We’ll be painting the soul of the subject, not the details!”
All skill levels are welcome. Instructor demonstrations daily. Individual instruction and critiques.
