Join LPAPA Signature Artist Dan Graziano in Laguna Beach, California, for a 3-Day Laguna Plein Air Painting Workshop in this famous artists’ colony. This workshop will focus on painting “alla prima” (all at once) on location and en plein air (outdoors), as well as developing greater skills of observation, simplification and quickly painting “wet on wet” to create strong artistic and “painterly” paintings.
Beginning with a brief discussion on oil painting basics (from materials to paint handling), the workshop will also address the fundamentals of color, value, edges, perspective and other “practical” elements related to successful plein air painting. Each day, participants will do small, timed painting exercises en plein air at select nearby locations incorporating the painting techniques discussed with plenty of one-on-one individual instruction. Each day’s instruction will include a short painting demo by Dan, with explanation of his process along the way. This workshop is designed for beginning to advanced painters in both acrylic and oil mediums.
