Workshop Description

This 4 day workshop will begin outdoors on location (weather permitting), creating small plein air studies, along with drawings and photography.  Students will then use these references to create a larger painting in the studio with an emphasis on atmosphere, feeling, and translating paint to life.  Scott will give plein air and studio demonstrations and provide each student with individualized instruction.  Maximum class size will be 10 students.


All levels welcome.  Scott will be teaching in oils so this class will be most helpful for students working in oils.
