This is the third course in the Drawing in the Landscape series. In this course we observe the beauty of color in the landscape, as understood through the long-standing tradition of plein air painting. Shot on location in the city of San Francisco and the nearby East Bay Hills, this course inspires the audience to look at the phenomenon of color more closely and to teach a practical skill set in working with color in an artistic medium. Instructor Darryl Jones paints with U.C. Berkeley landscape architecture professor Chip Sullivan, and chemical engineer turned landscape designer Daniel Collazos. As they paint their favorite subjects, each of them shares useful painting techniques and their understanding of color while deliberating on the built environment.


This course is approved for 1 AICP CM credit.
