Allegany Arts Council

This is a 1-Day Plein Air Workshop with Barbara Jaenicke, Mountain Maryland Plein Air Workshop/Allegany Arts Council. The fee is $150 and includes lunch.The camera also doesn't experience the landscape in the same way as an artist; it doesn't provide the sensory experience from the artist's time spent observing the location. When painting outdoors, many artists fall into the trap of recording only the subject matter within the landscape. But more important to the plein air artist is to capture accurate information regarding values, color temperature and chroma (color intensity)all things the camera messes up. In this one-day workshop, Jaenicke will discuss and demonstrate (in oil) the specific visual information she strives to capture in the landscape to take back to the studio. Artists may work in any medium.Please contact the Arts Council for a supply list.
