Plein Air Landscape Painting
In this on-site outdoor landscape painting class, we will go outside every morning and paint directly from nature. At several different sites, we will respond to the various individual locations. Emphasis is on both the intense observation of nature and your personal visual response. Oil paints are preferred, but acrylics are accepted materials. There will be individual attention and group critiques. Previous experience helpful, but not necessary.
