We are thrilled to have German artist, Ulrich Gleiter to the atelier this fall! As a first thing that we notice in a painting is the mood in the sky. Whether it was a cold winter day or scorching sun, we feel the weather, the time of the day. “Paint the relations between the sky against the earth, and only later come the many other things in between”. That’s advice from one of Ulrich`s early mentors at the Russian Academy of Arts. Using Townsend Atelier’s rich urban neighborhood as subject matter, students will turn to the city`s varied architecture, to parked cars in the streets, the glinting sprawl of billboards, a parking lot, or retail stores. The goal is to find abstracted beauty and emotional significance in the interactions of light, color, and air. Anything can be painted.
During the class, students will paint outside, in plein air. Gleiter will show students how to observe the big relations and put them onto the canvas. How to maintain color harmony, painting light and shadow, proportion and capturing the unique essence of the subject matter will be covered. There will be a lunch break each day. Lunch is on your own. For those traveling from out of town, should you need recommendations for accommodations, please reach out to us and we will be happy to help!
