Plein Air Painting: Andrew Wyeth on Smithsonianmag.com 

Really Look at the use of TEXTURE in the work. What else strikes you? Foreground, Middle Ground, Background? http://www.awyeth.com/Above%20the%20Orchardem.jpg
  • NVAS: 1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.
  • Question to begin with: BEFORE we go out – let’s reflect. Look at DAY 1. What was the strongest aspect of your DAY 1 painting? Now compare that to day 7… 21 hours later of painting. What is the strongest aspect of THAT painting? What are 3 things you see that you have GROWN in when it comes to the painting? What are 2 things you are focusing on today? What is ONE ELEMENT of ART that you are REALLY going to keep in mind?

Look what you’ve accomplished on facebook.com/artwithkorb

End of the Day Reflection (use the back of this page for more reflection space): You had a lot of NEW spaces and views to choose from today. What was your FOCUS of ATTENTION on in the composition? What was the FOCAL POINT of painting 1? How do you see it drawing a viewer’s eye into the work? What about painting 2? Where are your HIGH CONTRASTS in the painting?

#WinslowHomer and #PleinAirPainting – An #American #Master!

http://www.portlandmuseum.org/homer/about-winslow-homer http://www.portlandmuseum.org/sites/default/files/images/artwork/1988.55.11.jpg
  • NVAS: 1.1P: Use multiple approaches to begin creative endeavors.
  • Question to begin with: VERY Windy yesterday – how do you feel about the painting from yesterday? We thought about it at the end of the class – I get that – but you are a day removed. Give some examples and some real consideration – maybe about the compositions, maybe about the technique, maybe about something entirely else… River painting today – how do you feel the WATER will be a challenge? How might it be solved? Think about the technique… Ok – Let’s get our stuff and GO PAINT!

End of the Day Reflection (use the back of this page for more reflection space): TODAY we had two paintings… (I hope as of the writing of this piece. How did the first painting from today help you develop the second painting? (The questions will work today – weather pending.) Elaborate with examples from your paintings. We considered the different types of compositions (8?) and then went out and painted – right? How did looking at the various types of compositions help you develop (or simply be more aware) of the compositions you set up today?
