Guest Artist Workshop: Larry Blovits
Pastel Landscape: Color and Light
Illuminating light characteristics effect how the artist perceives colors in the landscape. Recognizing and mixing the correct hue, saturation, value, and temperature, and combining that with a particular light source will enable you to create a powerful and beautiful statement. Demonstrations and lectures on related fundamentals, techniques, procedures, and materials will be part of the workshop, along with individualized attention. Painting time will be working in the studio from a photographic source. Click here to register.
