Intro to Plein Air Painting workshop

Introduction to "Plein Air" painting

Philippe Gandiol - Biography
I'm looking forward to having my good friend Philippe Gandiol

come to Oak Park and teach this workshop.
Location: Patris Studio Gallery
3460 2nd avenue
Sacramento California 95817
This workshop is an introduction to plein air painting with oils. The first day will take place indoors in Patris' spacious studio. Philippe will go through the materials to be used when painting outdoors, followed by a demonstration illustrating the different steps and aspects leading to a successful painting: composition, simplification, values,  edges, light and color.  The following day will take place outdoors (weather permitting) where you will be able to apply what you learned the day before in a "plein air " environment. Drawing skills and some painting experience is recommended.
