    The instructor will approach the landscape by breaking it down into the fundamental elements of Drawing, Value, Composition, and Color. This will be enhanced by a demonstration of atmospheric perspective, edge control, quality of light source, and paint application. There will be a detailed explanation of how to approach the different textures of Water, Trees, Sky and Landmass.   

    In addition to these elements,  participants will be guided through the process of developing a painting by the following steps: A small color study,  a Plein Air Study, and a Light Effect study. The workshop will conclude with the teaching of the idea of Light Effect and what decisions are necessary for achieving a powerful light effect directly from Plein Air work.  

    Personalized and daily critiques are a foundation of this workshop.  Each participant is encouraged to bring one sample of previous work.  Bonus instruction: Mr. Salaz will be doing Sunset paintings for many of the evenings.  Participants are welcome to join and paint if they desire. Mr. Salaz will be demonstrating his technique in capturing these fleeting moments of light.
