Plein air painting in Monet’s Garden

In my painting retreat/workshop you will discover how to create luminous, dramatic, light-filled plein air paintings. During the week,  I will reveal painting secrets to push your skills to the next level. You will learn the importance of thumbnail sketches, value studies. We will discuss how to  create atmosphere, and the pros and cons of working with reference photographs. I’ll explain how to use your reference photos, plein air paintings and sketches to help you create larger studio works.

By the end of the week, you will grasp the interplay between warm and cool colors. This will help set the mood of your paintings. We will discuss how to build successful paintings with strong design and composition. You will also learn the use of edges, interesting brushwork and texture. In this fun class, you will explore simplified color mixing and gain a better understanding of how to organize your palette, and mix color.
