I'm happy to announce that in the Spring 2009, I will be conducting a workshop in plein air landscape painting in the beautiful Napa Valley!
Napa Valley is, as you well know, one of America's premiere wine countries. Come join me and paint the beautiful wineries and bucolic farmscapes, and have a little wine while you're at it. Well no, we won't be drinking during the workshop, we'll have some at the end of each day!
The workshop will focus on the process of creating a plein air painting from start to finish, with emphasis on composition, color strategies, and getting the idea across. There'll be demos, lectures, critiques, and of course plenty of time to paint the beautiful sceneries of Napa Valley. And, as always, all levels are welcome! (If you are a beginner beginner, don't worry, I don't bite!)
The workshop takes place March 20-21-22, (fri-sat-sun) 2009. I will have more details soon, including cost and sign-up info. If you are interested, please make sure I have your email address so that I can send you information. The last time, the workshop filled up quickly and some people weren't able to sign-up because they found out about it too late. If you were one of those people, I want to make sure you get the same chance as everyone else!
Also, I will post the info on my website under "workshops" sometime this week.
If the past workshops are any indication, we are going to have a fabulous time!
