This is your chance to study plein air painting methods with Bjorn Lundeen at the Lower Nehalem Community Trust’s beautiful Alder Creek Farm (ACF). Bjorn has brought a resurgence of interest in plein air painting and looks forward to sharing his techniques for using water based oil paints.
Alder Creek Farm is a 54-acre former dairy and is now conserved open space featuring a five-acre community garden, orchard, greenhouse and 49 acres of creeks, wetlands, uplands and beautiful views of the estuary, bay and ocean. Plan to spend the day painting in this beautiful environment—a sanctuary for native plants and wildlife of all kinds.
Topics covered: Introduction to water based oils; rendering the landscape; how to create atmosphere and distance; creating compositions; capturing light, shadow and color; responding to the landscape.
Materials provided: Drawing surfaces, charcoal pencils, water based oil paints, mediums, brushes, painting surfaces. It is highly recommended to bring outdoor easels and chairs if you have them.
Bjorn Lundeen is a representational impressionist artist with an extensive background in figure drawing, portraiture, and plein air painting. He has worked as an assistant figure drawing teacher at Humboldt State University before graduating with a BFA in 2006.
He is a regular painting instructor at the Hoffman Center.
