TWO UPCOMING EN PLEIN AIR PAINTING WORKSHOPS:

JUNE 18 – 22, 2018 – STOCKBRIDGE/LENOX, MASSACHUSETTS – 9AM TO NOON EACH DAY 
AUGUST 3 – 5, 2018 – WALLKILL, NEW YORK – 9AM TO 4PM EACH DAY

My en plein air workshops focus on particular skills and techniques that help plein air paintings successful. Watercolor is a fast-working medium and is perfect for capturing fleeting impressions of light and landscape and we’ll learn to use our sketchbooks, recording impressions of the changing light and its effect on the landscape.  This kind of work helps to identify our focus and theme and teaches us to simplify complex scenes.  We’ll develop more ambitious paintings using both direct  observation and using our compositional sketches. Each day will start with a quick instructor demonstration and end with a relaxed review of the our work.

What to expect in my classes & workshops

Above all, you’ll experience a class that is both fun and informative. It is my earnest desire to help every student to grow and learn quickly.

All of my classes & workshops combine demonstrations, one-on-one instruction and objective advice in a way that allows students at all ability levels to make great progress in a very short time.

My approach focuses on providing information and insights to each individual – meeting them where they are and helping them get to where they want to go.

My firm belief is that fundamental skills are important, particularly for a tricky medium like watercolor. So every class and workshop has a strong focus on the fundamentals, presented in a way that makes them simple and understandable.

Powerful and expressive paintings result from purposeful design and good technique – both subjects are covered in my classes.
