Workshop – Tammie Dickerson – Creating Mood and Atmosphere
April 30, 2024 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Plein Air in Oil – Creating Mood and Atmosphere
Learn how to approach the landscape with paint and create something more than what you see before you. All skill levels are welcome, we’ll cover finding your most expressive composition as well as the right values and chroma to add depth to your painting. Every painting is an adventure, let’s walk this one together.
Recommended Supplies – although bring whatever you are comfortable with using.
A selection of brushes – assorted flats, and a small round for details
Oil paints – the following is a basic palette, feel free to add more colors (I have a ridiculous range of paint on my palette)
lemon yellow, cad yellow, ultra blue, maybe a turquoise, Alizarin crimson, cad red, cad orange, a brown, ivory black for mixing greens, white
I am solvent free, and don’t use turps or chemicals. I use food grade safflower oil to clean my brushes, but not as a medium. If you like to thin your paint, please bring Gamblin Solvent Free gel
I prefer painting on gessoed masonite, but you may use any surface you are comfortable with. Please gesso your panels before the workshop, the paint will move so much better for you.
