Members use code at checkout: Workshop


Do you enjoy immersing yourself in nature and developing an outdoor oil painter's vision? Kelly is passionate about both and sharing her enthusiasm for capturing the landscape on location. Kelly will demonstrate her simplified approach including setting an intention, composition, and color temperature. After each demo, students will practice the approach on their own. The last day will include a final group critique. As the French call it "plein air" will accelerate your studio painting skills quicker. Prerequisite: Drawing skills, Oil Painting skills & Color Mixing skills Inclement Weather Be advised if we have to go indoors for a day. 2024 Workshop Supply List Preparation is crucial for an outdoor painter. Set up, get familiar with your gear, and paint outdoors before we meet so you will be able to concentrate on the practice. ____ Outdoor Easel (I use an Open Box M or a Day Tripper easel with best quality tripod) ____ Outdoor Umbrella if you have one, if not , shade will work (Guerrilla Shadebuddy or Best Brella) ____ Quality bristle brushes (filberts or flats) two #10/three #6/three #4/one #3 As long as the brushes are clean, sharp and springy to apply thick or thin paint.
