This workshop provides an alternative to traditional studio painting as students engage directly with the natural environment during on location sessions. Work with the changes of your natural surroundings as it offers fresh new moments in a painting’s outcome. Rather than being guided to freeze or capture a descriptive image, instruction will seek to incorporate abstraction, new dynamic color relationships and direct responses to the changing atmosphere. A familiarity with basic methods and materials is required. Students must provide their own portable easels and all supplies.
