I-day Workshop: Painting the Landscape Outdoors

September 29, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


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 either in San Francisco or nearby (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.

Materials: A materials list will be emailed to you once you’ve registered, in advance of the workshop. In addition to paints, medium (such as turpentine), canvases and brushes, you will need to bring a portable easel. I have a few extra plein air easels, so if you need to borrow one, please let me know in advance.

Cost of workshop: $80. This amount is refundable in full up 2 weeks prior to the workshop. The fee for students who would like to sign up for 4 workshops from July – October is $60 per workshop ($240 for 4 workshops to be paid in advance of all 4).

Please contact me through the Contact page on this site regarding registration.
