The focus of this two day workshop is ‘tone’ as it relates to painting landscapes en plein air (ie out in the field). Enjoy two days of working in the field and gaining a solid understanding of tone is a vital ingredient to improving your painting. With a good understanding of tone you can bring atmosphere and mood into your paintings, whether it be still life, portraiture or landscape.
