The landscape is an endless fount of color inspiration, yet thoughtful landscape color is only partially about referencing the colors we see in nature. More often than not, a successful color solution also involves the implementation of a color strategy or “color plan.” In a series of guided exercises, this workshop demonstrates some of the ways you can build landscape harmony: 1) how color strategies are based on similarity or contrast, or a combination of both; 2) how landscapes can have greater color unity with the use of “limited color groups” — two or three basic color families into which all the other colors may be grouped; 3) how a limited palette, specific to each painting, can support the harmony; and 4) the proper way to reference photographs, so as not to become “copyists.” Although we will reference photos in this workshop, we never copy photographic color; instead, we learn to build color harmony by becoming color strategists and inventors. You can work with your own photographs or work with those provided by the instructor. Detailed tips for selecting reference photos for the workshop will be provided before the workshop.

This is not a class for first-time painters (those who have never painted at all); however, it is ideally suited for plein air or studio landscape painters who want to expand their color vocabulary. Media: Oil, acrylic, pastel.
