|Pigeon Cove, 8x10, plein-air oil on linen, 2012|
There are still several spaces left in my four-week plein-air painting class that will run four Sundays in a row, from April 15 through May 6. We'll be painting in southern Maine, New Hampshire (York, Newcastle, Rye) and Rockport, Mass.
Our approach will be about seeing - perception, feeling, and expression - more than it will be about accuracy in color or drawing, although these will be covered too. I will be emphasizing simplification, spontaneity, and “seeing big.” We’ll be making sincere records of fresh experiences that can function both as finished paintings in their own right and as studies for larger, more conceptual work in the studio.
These classes ARE appropriate for the absolute beginner as well as for the experienced painter looking to loosen up and stray a bit further into personal expression. I have two primary goals for everyone, including myself: to develop a unique, expressive painting style and to have a great time doing it. Tuition is $200.
If you're interested in more information, like the materials list and tentative locations, please give me a shout.
