There are certain transcendent moments when artists must paint what they see, whether on a backwoods trail, in a jeep driving along the coast, or relaxing in their own backyard. Artist and teacher Frank LaLumia shows them how, translating his twenty-five years of practical experience into the instruction they need to envision nature's essence and capture it on paper and canvas. They'll learn how to plan ahead and make the most of their time in the field. They'll also learn the basics of rendering natural light and color properly, how different paints can affect their plans and how fluency in the language of painting allows them to capture the extraordinary, magical happenings in the world beyond their window.
