I will be sharing principles of landscape painting from Frank Vincent Dumont (which are nicely summarized in Carlson’s Guide to Landscape Painting) handed down from my teacher, Frank Mason.
Oil as well as watercolor are welcome, but indeed any medium is acceptable, it’s the principles after all that we are focusing on.
I’ve provided a little info here about equipment and working out of doors, plein air. A pencil and a sketchbook are all you need to study nature out of doors, however to paint one can step up from there but for getting around NYC, saving weight and bulk is going to go a long way toward making the experience much more enjoyable than it would be if you were lugging around tons of material and a heavy easel. One can use a French Easel or a portable outdoor easel made by a variety of manufacturers but I’ve pretty much abandoned that for the more convenient set up of using a pochade box which attaches to a camera tripod and then a backpack with the few other items I need.
