Many artists agree that landscape painting is best done in front of your subject in the great outdoors. The work tends to have a freshness and urgency that is hard to recreate when working from photographs. But what do you do if you live in England and the weather is less than ideal?
At the request of students at the Dulwich Art Group in the winter months I use video loops of locations playing on the large studio monitor. You can learn how to capture the scene as the light shifts and the pedestrians pass by just as you would en plein air but without having to worry about the rain, your easel being blown over or having your extremities frozen.
The teaching remains the same and when the weather is suitable we will venture out, to paint the same scenes or to choose new ones.
If interested please google "Dulwich Art Group" and contact the organisers Simon Dunstan or Alison Packer.
