Rich’s studio landscape workshop will be a journey into reducing a complex landscape, into a powerful artistic statement. Using student field studies and photos, we will sketch out Notan thumbnails with a sharpie. (Notan: a Japanese word that means “light-dark balance.”) Rich will offer brief demo sketches at the beginning of the first day, students will look at their photo references and make their own Notan choices about their sketches. These important studies will then be turned into paintings that will be worked on for the remainder of the two day workshop. CLICK for registration info for this workshop

The following week we will do a single long-pose all night. Doors will be open by 5:30 and we will begin at precisely 6:00pm so get there beforehand to set-up and do a meet-n-greet.
