This workshop is five days of painting outside in the landscape, for painters of all levels, working in oils, pastels or acrylics. I work in all three of those mediums on location and in the studio, and am happy to see artists in my workshops with either of the three.
Since we all come to painting with a lot of information and history of our own, it’s not possible for me to know each individual student’s experience and abilities. I’ve designed my workshops so that it doesn’t matter if you’ve been painting for half of your life, or for half of the last month, each student will benefit from the exercises I’ve designed. They will help to strengthen your current abilities, and expose those skills that need strengthening. I work with each individual student at their own level, spend a lot of time with each student at their easel giving individual instruction. I demo everything that I ask you to do.
You’ll leave the workshop having spent five days studying the basic elements of painting… Drawing, Value, Color, Edges and Design… with one other element, possibly the most important one of all… Concept… being explored and discussed at length.
