Illume Workshop
High Country Summer

Kathryn Stats will be teaching a plein air workshop in beautiful Sun Valley this summer! This workshop addresses problems encountered in designing a painting on location through the following concepts and techniques:

  1. Rearranging masses to form a more pleasing pattern.
  2. Changing spacial relationships.
  3. Emphasizing or minimizing elements to produce a strong design that will carry the piece from an average, "okay" work to a provocative piece that draws the viewer to stay focused for longer and not just pass over the picture. This is accomplished by simplifying shapes and minimizing the number of values in the piece.
  4. The number of values and percentage of each of those values in relationship to total mass are key to a strong painting.
  5. Applying color within defined value boundaries.
