IMPRESSIONIST’S JOURNEY III – PLEIN AIR PAINTING, DESERT VERBENA
A favorite subject for many artists are flowers….in vases, on the table, and in fields. In this DVD Diane goes en plein air to paint a landscape that includes a field of desert verbena.
The key teaching elements in this DVD are:
1. Simplification: How to capture the essence and definition of clumps of flowers/bushes without resorting to painting every petal and leaf;
2. Composition: How to improve your composition by including objects that do not exist in the scene, but can be pulled from other places around you;
3. Panting sand/ground: How to create just the right value, color temperature and interest in both the foreground and in the distance;
4. Painting mountains and trees in the distance and successfully incorporating them into your color harmony and composition.
