This is the time of year I start thinking about painting out-of-doors again. After a winter of indoor painting (lemons, camellias, still lifes overflowing with fruits and flowers) I begin to itch for packing up a picnic and hitting the road.
My classes are one day in length, from 10-4, and my better half cooks up lunch for us. Coffee and chocolate are part of the program too – you need the extra fortification when you are braving the elements.
And if it is raining? We will meet at my studio at Nepenthe (the old log house directly above the terrace, and paint “alla prima” indoors and then, if it clears, out of doors.
We talk about getting organized, getting set up for success, and quick and fun ways to get your canvas covered with paint.
Can’t draw? That’s ok. Drawing is a wonderful practice and I will teach you a bit about using it for observation and structure.
But I will also show you how to get started WITHOUT a lot of drawing skills – or even any at all.
