Calvin Liang will be teaching a 3 day workshop with one day of outdoor painting. Two days will be spent working on a single studio painting based on photos you take on location. Calvin will begin with a demonstration then he will spend time with each student throughout the rest of the day. It is recommended to bring a laptop or tablet for the studio days. Alternatively, you may have color prints of your reference photos printed locally.

  2. How to better see and use warm and cool color in landscape;

  3. How to command hardness and softness of the edges to create space in a painting;
