Bucks for Ducks Call for Art
Dawson workshop
pastels 100

A call to all artists.
I am teaching a 5 day plein air workshop in Sedona, Arizona October 30 to Nov 3, 2017. This is a great opportunity to paint in one of the most paintable locations in the United states. The orange and red of the mountains and the great trees are overwhelming. I looking forward to the trip. I hope you can join me for a wonderful week of painting.

The first morning we will start off with a demonstration . We will explore the countryside I will explain what I look for in a landscape painting. How to overcome the problems of changing light and weather condistions; how to set up an overcast painting versus a sunny painting. Some of the topics I will touch on are listed below. There will be lots of hands on experience lot of ideas and useful concepts. I will be working with each of you individually.

Here are a some of the topics I will cover:
Creating color harmony.
Three types of compelling designs.
The importance of massing shapes.
Using edges to create the illusion of texture.
How to choose colors for under-painting.
Using organizational shapes
How to paint water
