28jun(jun 28)6:30 pm30(jun 30)4:00 pmCapturing the Mono Basin in Pastel with Ane Carla Rovetta


Event Details

The goal of this weekend is to work outside, on location, as much as possible. We will be
challenged by wind, weather, and our copious gear, however, the exuberant brilliance of “plein
air” paintings make them worth the effort. We will concentrate our vista paintings in the morning
when the wind and insects are most likely to cooperate, and then move inside for after lunch
lectures. Our late afternoon painting will be of a smaller scene in a sheltered place. Each
participant will go home with at least one small finished painting and several sketches, color
studies, and value experiments that will fuel future artistic endeavors.

Landscape painter Ane Carla Rovetta is known for her realistic depiction of our golden western
lands. She will guide students through a value system she modeled after Ansel Adams’ work that
will help organize the overwhelming hues of the summer terrain.
