Expressing Visual Poetry: Plein Air Painting in the Desert with Patty McGeeney

The purpose of this class is a crash course in painting basics. Value, composition, drawing, temperature, and edges. We will discuss and practice painting light which is crucial to painting nature. Also finding one’s expression, not just copying what’s in front of you but depicting what you see in a poetic expression of two dimensions and learning how to edit. 

I am going to jam pack a ton of knowledge I’ve learned through many workshops and my own art education and experience presenting it all in the simplest way I can. We’re going to think about what we are painting and how we can express what we want to say. If you are an experienced painter it will be a great class for you to dig deeper into your craft. If you are a beginner I’ll get you on a simple path of building blocks to develop your skills.

This class is held during BAI 16th Annual Plein Air Invitational.
