Ken will also be teaching a GCA landscape painting workshop this summer during the Hudson River Fellowship in Jackson, New Hampshire:
Essential Landscape Painting - from Technique to Poetic Expression
July 21 - 23 (3 days), $425
The instructor will approach the landscape by breaking it down into the fundamental elements of Drawing, Value, Composition, and Color. This will be enhanced by a demonstration of atmospheric perspective, edge control, quality of light source, and paint application. There will be a detailed explanation of how to approach the different textures of Water, Trees, Sky and Landmass. In addition to these elements, participants will be guided through the process of developing a painting through the following stages: A small color study, a Plein Air Study, and a Light Effect Study. The workshop will conclude with the teaching of the idea of Light Effect and what decisions are necessary for achieving a powerful light effect directly from Plein Air work. Personalized and daily critiques are a foundation of this workshop. Each participant is encouraged to bring one sample of previous work.
