Join LPAPA Signature Artist Calvin Liang for a 4-Day Plein Air Painting Workshop. Calvin Liang will be teaching with a focus on painting on location from direct observation. Plein air paining is a foundational part of training the eye to better understand the concepts of composition, design, and color harmony. The lessons will include 1) How to plan a composition that will be most effective for the artist’s intentions and preferences; 2) How to better see and use warm and cool color in landscape; 3) How to command hardness and softness of the edges to create space in a painting; 4) How to simplify the subject matter through the use of basic design, value, color, and drawing skills; 5) How to consider the reasons for different paint surface textures, and brushstroke direction over the forms; and 6) How to get the best possible results in a short time.
Dates: July 7-10, 2020
Location: Newport Beach, California
