Springtime Plein Air Limited Palette Painting

Online Class with Kari Ganoung Ruiz

Thursday, April 15th 1:00-3:00pm EST

Learn everything you need to get outside and paint! In this online session, Kari will detail her plein air setup and then demonstrate the compositional sketch, initial block in, and painting finish using oil color. Along the way, she'll discuss using a limited color palette to better tell a painting's story and how to choose those colors while painting outdoors! This is a daytime session and Kari will be set up outside on location. Participants will not receive a reference image until the day of or day before the class, and will also get to see the location live during the session.
