3-day Workshop led by James Gurney.
"We'll learn how to see, understand, and capture the effects of colored light. This is vital experience for all landscape, portrait, and imaginative artists. Beginning by studying white plaster casts under colored illumination, we'll learn about additive versus subtractive color and the principles of visual perception. We'll practice painting the nude figure, and also the figure draped, and costumed model under a variety of combination of colored light sources. Explanations, discussion, and demos will start the morning session, and students will work in the afternoon. Plus, weather permitting, we'll do an optional sunset painting expedition along the banks of the Hudson River."
