“It is an intriguing thing that nature seems to be but a colossal wealth of information; one tends to see, for example, the multitude of tiny branches and leaves before he truly sees the tree at all.” - Scott L. Christensen

When painting outdoors, it is easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of information available. Deciding where to start, what the focal point is, what to leave out, and what to keep, are all a series of small inspired decisions. This video walks you through the “why” behind these decisions while keeping the whole in mind, always working toward that ever-important last 10 percent. 


Establishing a Key that Reads


One of the many things that Scott L. Christensen is known for is a close value structure.  To achieve this, it is important to establish an overall key early on that will be carried throughout the painting. Through this video he will walk you through not only blocking in the painting, but also reworking the entire piece to re-establish his key as per the need of the painting. Only then will he be able to work toward finish. 


We will also be holding a few small advanced groups of no more than 3 artists. If you are interested, please contact Casey Singer at 208.787.5851 or art@christensenstudio.com.
