Summer Workshop with John Traynor: Plein Air



John specializes in teaching students how to attain an atmospheric landscape using the colors seen in nature.  He concentrates his teaching not on rules but on emphasizing the importances of the basic principles of painting.  John will perform frequent demonstrations; weather permitting, all student painting will be conducted outdoors.  Some of the principles covered are:

• Atmospheric perspective
• Values to create light and shadow
• Progressions to describe the light source
• Organizing light in a painting
