A strong understanding of natural color and lighting is an important asset to any environment artist or fine art painter. Among the challenges of outdoor painting, trees and foliage tend to be a couple of the most difficult subjects to paint. They need to come across as both effortless and convincing. A painter needs to also understand the dynamics of atmospheric perspective to know how to change the color of trees and foliage as they move back into the landscape.

In this 2-day gouache workshop, Mike Hernandez will share his methods for tackling complex trees and foliage. Through his plein air and studio demos and lectures, he will show you—via ZOOM—how to address every aspect of your work, from value, composition design, shape and color hierarchies, paint texture, brushwork, and more. This is a great workshop for anyone interested in painting and who would like to learn how to capture a rich sense of natural lighting and color into their artwork.

NOTE: This online class will be taught via Zoom. Students will have the opportunity to interact with Mike, watch his live demos (en plein air and studio), receive instruction, and get limited feedback. Mike will be using gouache. However, You can choose any medium to paint with. You’ll receive instructions about how to access the class a week before the workshop. To take this class, you need a microphone and camera-enabled computer OR an IPad/smart tablet OR a smartphone (android or IOS) and an internet connection.

Mike is a fine art plein air, painter, and has been a Visual Development Artist/Production Designer and Art Director at DreamWorks Animation. Some of his past projects include Sinbad, Spirit, Over The Hedge, Shrek 4, Puss In Boots, Bee Movie, Monsters Vs Aliens, and Turbo.
