Plein Air Workshop by Tanvi Pathare
"In this 3 day workshop, we will be learning the skill of Plein air painting, in the beautiful city of Vienna. We will be discussing topics like composition, color mixing, perspective and paint application. The course involves a demonstration on landscape painting and regular critics on the student's work. All levels of students are welcome. We will be working with the sight-size method and learn to impressionistically paint a landscape, learning to simplify nature."
