Painting the Nocturne with Keith GundersonRed Light Green Light 
The “Nocturne” or  landscape painting of a night scene is an exciting and increasingly popular motif for the plein air painter today. Painting a night-time scene, especially done en plein air, presents certain challenges and this course aims to create a work flow model for the painter to make painting the nocturne as easy as possible. By utilizing the light model, carefully orchestrating compositional trajectories and visualizing the topological stage, it’s possible for the artist to imbue their studio conjured paintings with the authenticity of the plein air sketch . Reference and sketches are provided by the students for their individual project focus. Recommended for students with painting experience.

A Special Note about Studio II Policies
Sometimes there can be too much of a good thing! The demand for Studio II classes is great, but the number of students who can be served is limited. This can result in disappointments and misunderstandings, so it seems best to spell out Studio II class policies and related information.
• Each teacher sets a class size dependiang on the space needed for each student. PRR’s oil classes are limited to 8 students.
• First come, first served! To register and hold your space, a class must be paid for. You can register and process payment by phone with a credit card or in person at the gallery.
• If you have to miss a class, a make-up may be possible by arrangement with the teacher and should be during that class session.
• If Canandaigua schools are closed due to weather, Studio II classes for that day are also cancelled. Please make sure we have your current contact details (phone, email) on file so we can contact you in case of sudden unforeseen events.
• Painting supplies purchased from the gallery must be paid for by the end of the current Studio II session.
• Cancelled classes will be made up.
• Artwork exhibited at the PRR gallery is by invitation of PRR.
Thank you!
