PLEIN AIR LANDSCAPE PAINTING WORKSHOP
THE POSTER STUDY
MARCH 25/26 (SAT/SUN)   9:30am - 5:30pm

The POSTER STUDY is a PORTRAIT of the LIGHT.
It is a color study that conveys the KIND and QUALITY of LIGHT within the VISUAL FIELD.

There is nothing random about the visual field; it is inherently organized. 
The effect of the Light is perfectly coordinated.
At each point in space just exactly the right amount and color of light is present.
This is due to the absolutely, mathematically consistent behavior of Light.
If this were not the case, if light behaved randomly, vision would not be possible.  

The coordinated relationships between all the values and colors that comprise the visual field create a state of tonal unity, a harmonious impression of the Light: THE POSTER.
