This three-day workshop with John Poon will be on-location the majority of the week, observing the colors and values of landscape as they appear from life. Most paintings will be in the form of quicker studies (1 - 2 hours outdoors). The focus will be on acquiring accurate color notes and establishing the simplified masses that are the foundation of any good composition. You will set your focus on identifying these masses, rather than the myriad of detail presented in outdoor subject matter.

Fundamentals of Landscape Painting is an intensive course directed at improving results of painting. A lecture, slide presentation, multiple demonstrations and critiques will be developed based on the specific needs of the class.

Field studies are a great learning tool and can be very useful to studio work as you develop an eye for the quality of light and color seen from life; however, as conditions change quickly outdoors, it is essential to have a shorthand method for collecting information on color, value, design and paint application. The goal of this class is very much about the process and understanding that good results come over time through the consistent application of fundamental principle.
