Plein Air Paintings

In October I'm starting a new Class. Even though we still  left  out some color mixing topics , including painting water, trees, rocks , but I decided to incorporate those subjects in my new block of studies.
So the whole new segment will  be dedicated to detailed study of Composition.
Sergey Bongart once said , "Value and Design set the painting. All else builds from them"   That's why composition is a second  most important part of successful painting.
We will study :
1. Space devision 
2. Focal Point
3. Eye movement
4. Variety
5. Line
 I think it will be a perfect opportunity to include those left out color subjects , as water, trees, rocks into the "Composition" class  
My highly recommended  list of books:
 "Color Choices "by Stephen Quiller 
"Blue and Yellow don'r make green" by Michael Wilcox
"Color and Light" by James Gurney

And here are a new group of plein air sketches made at the Bloedel Reserve this weekend .
