Learning Through A Painter's Eye
Experiences, Packages & Other: A plein air painting lesson with an experienced landscape artist

11"w x 14"h


Pick your favorite Sonoma County spot. We'll meet there just before the most beautiful time of day. I'll bring two easels, two 11" x 14" canvases, water soluble oil paints, and brushes needed, and my skills as a landscape painter, and teacher. Light changes rapidly. We will set up, study our setting, plan the paintings---this is when you'll learn how to see with Painter's Eyes. The fun really begins when painting starts! For the hour or two before the lighting shifts, we will enjoy the thrill of playing with color, brushes, and paint! You and I will paint the lovely scene together. I will coach and cheer you on as you create your own work of art---while I paint, too. Afterward, relaxing with a beverage and snack, we'll study our paintings to decide whether we like them "as is," or perhaps want to make small changes so they're even more satisfying. Both paintings will be yours to keep, bringing back all the fun and satisfaction of creation, using Painter's eyes! Masks, distancing, gloves (for painting,) and all safety measures will be observed. Please note: This package will be available from late -September through October, weather permitting, on a mutually agreeable date. The Sonoma County outdoor venue of your choosing must be safe, legal, accessible by vehicle to deliver supplies, reasonably level, with sufficient light for painting.
