“A painting is more than a depiction of a scene; it’s about the site, choice of interpretation and approach to the painting.” – Ray Roberts
Ray will be sharing his approach to outdoor painting; covering concept, site selection, design, layout, as well as color comparison and execution. His approach is direct, creating an accurate and thought-out light/dark pattern, following up with a lay-in of dark colors and finishing up with the light shapes. Every aspect to a painting is as critical as your ability to render what’s in front of you. Seeing the abstract image in a scene is the first step in visualizing a painting. It’s also important to weigh the interest quality of your concept. Roberts has developed several exercises designed to enforce these concepts and enhance your learning experience. Be prepared to cover lots of canvas during this 3-day workshop!
