Mitch Baird - Seeing & Capturing Your Subject
A lively plein air painting experience capturing the beauty Bainbridge Island
What does the act of ‘seeing’ mean for an artist? Find the answer by joining Mitch Baird for a lively plein air painting experience capturing the beauty Bainbridge Island. This workshop will explore the specifics of learning to ‘see’ the subject and as an artist, interpreting the visual elements, and executing it all onto the canvas. We will discuss the way the optics of the eye work, as well as seeing light, form, atmosphere, and space. The fundamental principles of painting – composition, drawing, value, color, and edges will be stressed as well as building a strong design from the elements of nature. Students will sharpen their focus by pushing for simplification of form, shape, and larger masses. This workshop is for all skill levels and individual attention will be a high priority.
Mediums: Oil, Acrylic, and Watercolor. (Demo’s will be done in Oil)
