Finding the Light with Chris Reid – This workshop explores a simplified method of utilizing underpainting to establish strong elements of composition and color. Techniques are drawn from over 35 years of plein air painting experience. Step by step demonstration of the process accompanied with helpful individual instruction will enable participants to be immersed in this practice.
If the weather is not good, we can work from still lives set up so I can show you my underpainting process.
