For beginning and intermediate plein air painters that want to learn to the process and best practices for painting outdoors in the landscape (“en plein air”). I will work with you individually in a hands-on, step-by-step fashion, guiding you from the start to finish of your painting. I’ll focus on aspects of the process including composition, drawing, color, value and paint handling. The class goal is that you’ll leave with confidence and knowledge to continue to develop as a plein air painter. I’ll begin with a demonstration painting to get the class started, followed by participants setting up and painting their own subjects.
The location will be will be somewhere in Alameda (TBD). The specific meeting location will be emailed to you in advance of the workshop. There will be a limit of 10 students in the workshop.
