In this illustrated lecture, Mr. Stern will examine the basic elements of representational landscape painting, also known as “plein air” or outdoor painting. Mr. Stern will show a number of paintings by various artists, of the past and the present, and discuss why a particular painting is successful or why it is not. Among the topics explored are basic composition systems, color use, and systems of perspective, with illustrations of successful and unsuccessful examples of each.
The lecture consists of about 80 slides and lasts approximately 45 minutes with time for questions and answers afterwards.
