This one day workshop will focus on Barry’s current residency with the Mass Audubon Society. Over the past sixteen months Barry has been travelling around Massachusetts, creating paintings and drawings at Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuaries.
Barry will show a selection of the more 120 watercolors he has produced for the project and share his residency sketchbooks.
You’ll learn about how the artist uses optics in the field, and how he organizes his art materials for efficient fieldwork. He’ll discuss the approaches he uses to create artwork on location and in his studio. Barry will lead students through basic drawing, tone and color exercises to help them get started with creating their own record of outdoor observations.
