Joan Vienot Plein Air Painting Workshops

Joan and Sonya

 

One-Day Workshop: Successfully Starting a Plein Air Painting

This workshop focuses on practicing identifiable shape-making in plein air painting, to help the artist create effective, readable shapes to greatly increase the likelihood of producing a strong painting. If the shapes are clear and the composition is strong, then the real fun of plein air painting, capturing the light, can happen sooner. Using oil paint, Joan will demonstrate concepts, composition, and color-mixing to paint the simplified scene en plein air, and then the artists will have opportunity to paint on their own with Joan mentoring. Pastel and watercolor artists are welcome as well.

Three-Day Workshops: Simplification

Painting “en plein air” is painting on-site, in open air. Joan Vienot will provide demonstration and instruction each morning, with individual assistance and mentoring in the afternoons as participants paint subjects of their own choosing.

This workshop will provide new insight to accomplished painters, and courage for the beginner, with focus on simplification of subject matter, using value and intensity to create believable composition, and enhancement of color through temperature relationship. Joan will instruct in oil painting but all media are welcome.

An optional half-day pre-workshop will help the painter decide how to choose a subject to paint en plein air, observing the changing light and shadow, practicing “thumbnail” sketching, and planning interesting compositions.
