Plein Air: An Introduction to Painting on Location

2016 David Westerfield

Learn the basics of setting up, choosing a subject, and composing and creating a painting outdoors. Learn to recognize and mix colors, brush techniques, and the next steps to turn a plein air field study into a larger studio painting. Through demonstration and one-on-one attention, David will cover composition, values, perspective, and more. Beginners and more seasoned plein air painters in oils and acrylics are invited to participate.

David Westerfield studied at Wayne State University and earned a BA in Art with a concentration in drawing and painting from North Park College in Chicago. Other study has included the American Academy of Art in Chicago and the Sedona Art Center in Arizona. David has had a career in graphic design and illustration. His illustration credits include The Saturday Evening Post, The Covenant Companion, and many corporate and editorial publications. His paintings were selected for the 2012 Manitou Music Festival poster and the 2014 Port Oneida Fair poster. westerfieldstudio.com
