Plein Air – The Joy of Observation! Developing your personal path: the problem, the practice and the performance.

The workshop will be tailored to meet the needs of the particular group.  Each group and each student is unique!  My goal will be to help you find your ‘next step’ whatever level you’re at. To bring more clarity to your work and to learn to paint with intent. To continue the journey from ‘painting’ to becoming a ‘painter’.

BIO: Carrying on the great traditions of representational oil painting and passing that torch to her students are Lyn’s two great passions in life.  She is an award winning plein air and studio oil painter with works that hang in private collections across the United States. Her devotion as a teacher began with nearly a decade as an illustration instructor and now continues through her workshops. After returning from studying art in Melbourne, Australia, Lyn began a 25 year career as an American illustrator, garnering awards from the Society of Illustrators, the Art Directors Club, the Illustrators Workshops, and the American Institute of Graphic Arts, among others. Lyn continues a lifelong quest to create ‘images that. She makes her home in Durango, Colorado and travels the West capturing its nuances on canvas.
