Qiang's approach to plein air painting will be demonstrated with particular focus on selecting a  dramatic composition, simplifying it,  observing the light distribution and using bold and loose strokes to create a powerful and accurate representation on canvas. Using demonstrations and individual assistance, Qiang will explain his process for creating energetic paintings by manipulating values, colors, edges and brushwork. Personal attention will be given to each student according to his or her current skill level and personal goals in art. The workshop is designed for outdoor practice painting from life, weather permitting. We will paint indoors using photos in the case of inclement weather.

Qiang Huang (pronounced as Chong Wong) came from China. He has studied art from multiple master artists like David Leffel and Sherrie McGraw. His paintings show remarkable accuracy and expressive brush strokes. Since 2004 his paintings have been selected continuously for the 14th, 15th, 16th and 18th Oil Painters of America's National Juried Exhibitions. American Artist Magazine has featured his teaching on the summer issue of the "Workshop".
