Masla will provide demonstrations each day in a variety of media of different ways for approaching plein air painting as well as sharing techniques in various media required to portray the illusion of depth, solidity, liquidity, atmosphere and light. Attention will be given to the emotional response and connection to the landscape and our conveying our response to it though our art. He will gently guide you to uncover your unique signature expression to give “life energy” to your creations. You will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of the techniques for rendering rocks, sea and sky, and the quaility of light as well as an expanded sense of the passion and connectedness required to imbue your work with this vital energy.
