Doug Dawson

Pastel Landscape Painting

Sept 6-Sept 11, 2021 (Four Teaching Days)

In this workshop Doug will cover principles and techniques he uses in his own art. Including, but not limited to, three patterns of design; how to find color solutions as you paint; how to create exciting and harmonious color. Pastel is the best medium for learning about color precisely, because of its limitations, as one can only combine pastel colors by layering one on top of another. Doug will illustrate different approaches to layering color. An important skill in landscape painting is the ability to separate space into a foreground and background plain. Students will learn the five principles used to create the illusion of depth in a painting.

2021 COVID Precautions 

It is impossible to assess the impact, if any, of COVID-19 for the upcoming 2021 season, but all artists should be prepared to abide by the following measures while attending workshops.

  1. Participants must fill out a quick health questionnaire to make sure they do not exhibit any symptoms.
  2. Masks are required to be worn while in classrooms and shared spaces.
  3. Participants must also wash hands or use hand sanitizer at the beginning of each class and often during class sessions.
  4. Participants are required to stay 6 feet apart for social distancing protocols.

A floor plan per each of our three studios has been created to ensure that the artist tables and lecture area will allow people to socially distance themselves a minimum of 6 feet. 
In lieu of crowding around the artist during demos, a desktop camera system and large format digital TV screens have been installed in each of the studios to allow students a close up view of demos.
We will be providing students with hand-sanitizer at their work stations. In addition, the studios will be closed for 1 hour in the late evenings for a daily UV sanitation and touch surface cleaning.
