John Budicin-PAINTING OUTDOORS | Franciscan Life Process Center | Thursday, 25. June 2020

Painting outdoors is challenging.  Learning what to select and what to omit in order to make a strong statement is our goal. We are not obligated to paint everything as it is, the camera does a better job.
Beginning with a simple statement we capture the shapes, values and light source quickly and from there we will work towards a finish. Demonstrations supplemented with visual aids, will help to clarify the key elements discussed. From a simple statement to a finished painting.
The essence of the workshop will be what to look for in nature.
How to simplify and unify shapes and values. This is the first step. From there we will introduce the light source and freeze the moment. Keeping the light consistent and not chasing it as we work. Learning to see and respond to the beauty nature presents us with and translating that into a personal statement will be our focus.
I don’t want to make you paint as I do. I want you to respect and revere nature in your own way. Paint what you see but mostly paint what you feel.
