Capturing Light and Color en Plein Air

2017 Capturing Light & Color en Plein Air

Learn the basics of setting up, choosing a subject, composing and creating a painting outdoors in this three-day class. See how the quickly changing landscape can help make your paintings more exciting by forcing decisive, bold brushwork. Practice recognizing and mixing colors, learn techniques for creating a center of interest, and the next steps to turn a plein air field study into a larger studio painting. Through demonstrations and one-on-one attention, David will cover composition, values, perspective, and more.

David Westerfield studied at Wayne State University and earned a BA in Art from North Park College in Chicago. Other study included the American Academy of Art in Chicago, the Sedona Art Center in Arizona, and with painters Marcia Burtt and Randall Sexton. He exhibits in Michigan galleries and Hawaii —another favorite painting location. David was selected for the 2017 Manitou Music Festival poster. His painting was also used on the 2012 poster.
