Painting the San Francisco Landscape at Crissy Field

September 30, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm


The best weather is here now…let’s get out and paint and enjoy a day studying value and color in plein air.

I’ll start this class doing a short value sketch demonstration on paper, in order to establish a value design in my scene. Each of you will do the same and we’ll have a value “roadmap” for our paintings.

The location will be at Crissy Field, San Francisco, where we’ll have an opportunity to paint any number of great views, looking towards the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point, the old military buildings, Alcatraz, etc. This spot is beautiful whether it’s foggy or sunny!

The workshop is for intermediate plein air painters that want to learn the process and best practices for painting outdoors in the landscape. I’ll work with you individually, guiding you from start to finish of your painting. I’ll focus on aspects of the process including composition, drawing, color, paint handling, and in particular: VALUE!

There will be a limit of 10 students in the workshop.

Exact meeting Location: The Warming Hut

Materials: A materials list will be emailed to you once you’ve registered. In addition to sketching materials, paints, canvases or paper, and brushes, you will need to bring a portable easel.

Cost of workshop: $80. This amount is refundable in full up to 3 days prior to the workshop.

REGISTRATION is a two step process:

1) Send me an email and let me know you’re planning to register so I can put your name on the list.

2) Send me your payment on either PayPal (pay to bruce@brucekatzstudio.com) or Venmo (pay to @Bruce-Katz-9)  or by check. I’ll send you my address if you need it.
