Fall Slope by Clark Mitchell

This 2-day workshop will stress the importance of underpainting, with Clark emphasizing the powerful tools of drawing, values, edges, and color to create dynamic landscapes. The workshop will feature daily demos with plenty of at-easel assistance. Although Clark will demo in pastel, other art mediums are welcome.

About Clark Mitchell –

Growing up in the shadow of the Rockies, Clark Mitchell very early discovered a love of the natural world. Given a set of fine old German pastels by his father when quite young, he quickly embraced the medium for its ease of handling, brilliance of color and portability.

Clark received a bachelor’s degree in art from Colorado College in the seventies and moved to San Francisco to continue his studies at the Academy of Art College.

In order to fully immerse himself in the countryside he loved to portray, Clark left San Francisco with his partner over thirty years ago and moved north to the beautiful Sonoma County wine country. Painting expeditions throughout the state as well as across the country continue to provide challenge as well as inspiration.

Clark has been designated a Master Pastelist by the Pastel Society of America and a Distinguished Pastelist by the Pastel Society of the West Coast, and he recently earned Signature Member status with the Laguna Plein Air Painters of America. He has received numerous awards in local as well as national competitions and has oil and pastel paintings included in art collections internationally.
