 “Painting outdoors is exhilarating because you get to stretch your legs, enjoy fresh air, and immerse yourself in inspirational subjects. While inspiration runs high when painting outside, sometimes the amount of material to paint from can be overwhelming. In this workshop I will show you how I select a subject and composition from the expansive 360 degree view. Learn to simplify your subject and find strength in the power of large shapes. With the big shapes taken care of, it’s easier to loosen up and find confidence in using fluid washes, expressive brushwork, and bold color. There will be a plein air demonstration each morning and afternoon, with plenty of time for students to paint and explore on their own. Painting locations to be determined (input welcome).”
