"5-Day Plein Air Painting Workshop in Beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada"
August 14-18, 2017
 

Join artist James Middleton for a 5-day outdoor painting workshop on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. The workshops offer a good balance between friendly interchange and education. They will be a relaxed, yet informative experience for all participants. Subjects covered: • Various ways to start a painting. • Making quick field sketches to determine compositions. • Making preliminary value sketches. • Types of light and value planes. • Understanding cool/warm colours. • Simplifying detail for a more powerful statement. • Understanding edges (soft, hard and lost). • Creating atmospheric perspective. And more. If you are coming from out-of-province, I recommend staying a few extra days – or even longer – to enjoy the spectacular Bluenose Coast!
