Class Notes

Oil Painting class(es) started this week with a good group of, mostly experience painters and we will be focusing on Basics. Gee!- would that be important for those of us who have been painting for awhile?
In the spring we addressed technique and brushwork, and this summer we spent a lot of time looking at the landscape and learning how to design a painting around good compositional ideas.
This fall we are going back a step or two to work on things even more foundational like how to start a painting, drawing and placement.
Mustard, anyone?



Saturday, Sept 13th Plein Air Painters are gathering in Crestone to paint the area. The SLV Painters have been invited to join local painters on Saturday to paint in the Spanish Creek area. This event is sponsored by the local Land Trust which has preserved a 20 acre meadow along the Spanish Creek used for elk calving.
San Luis Valley Painters: we plan to meet at the PLEINVIEW Studio at 8:30 to carpool. Bring a lunch. We will be back in Alamosa by 4pm.
