The most important quality to improve your work is to see with fresh eyes. Whether that is to see your work differently, notice new things about the landscape, or expand the things you want to say with your work, seeing with fresh eyes will keep your work progressing wherever you happen to be in your development.
This course will help find ways to cultivate a different way of seeing. Each day of the course will include a short lecture, a demonstration, individualized instruction en plein air (weather permitting), and critiques.
Allen earned a fine arts degree from Brigham Young University where he met his wife Janice. They settled in Centerville, Utah where Allen began his career in commercial art and computer game design. Over the next twenty years, Allen refined his artistic skills in the digital world developing video games with fine companies like Disney, Microsoft, and Take Two. It was during this time that Allen discovered the joys and challenges of landscape painting right in his backyard. Utah is a painter’s paradise and a “university” for teaching the plein air artist. He believes that painting on location and in the studio are complimentary pursuits, one building upon the other.
