Class Description

For Nancie’s class, pastelists and oil painters are encouraged to join this two-day workshop to better understand perspective. Atmospheric perspective for the landscape painter will be discussed as well as a deeper understanding of linear perspective to correctly add structures to the landscape/cityscape.

Master pastelist, Nancie King Mertz, will instruct this plein air workshop and demo each day in pastel. However, as an oil painter, she will assist with that medium as well.
