Plein Air Painting
Instructor: Matt Borruso

Plein Air refers to the practice of painting outdoors, and is typically focused on the representation of nature and the fleeting qualities of light and atmosphere. We will begin our work with drawing, rendering objects in the real world using sighting, perspective, and most importantly close observation. We will then move on to working with water miscible oil paints, first in the classroom and then out in the field. Design and application concerns such as composition, color theory, underpainting, and wet on wet approaches will also be discussed.
