3- Day Oil Painting Workshop
3- Day Oil Painting Workshop
Plein Air Oil Painting with Lyn Boyer
Thursday, Oct. 4th - Saturday, Oct. 6th, 2018
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’.
I will be doing a demo start to finish - explaining my thought process for each step - aiding you in developing a personal methodology that will work for you. During the demo we’ll touch on a variety of subjects - drawing, design, value, color, harmonizing your painting, materials and brush and paint handling. We will discuss how to approach your creative process – concept, scene selection and preparation. And most importantly - how to develop the mindset of ‘practice’ that leads to successful ‘performance’. The last two days of the workshop will be devoted entirely to painting. Every student receives a 30 minute block of one-on-one, focused instruction on both painting days. Other students will be welcome to step away from their easels and listen in quietly or spend the time working on their own paintings.

Keep in mind, you may be in the field most of the day. You will want to bring plenty of water, a lunch, sun screen, comfortable shoes and shade if possible!
The supply list is just a suggestion. Supplies are expensive so don’t feel you need to go out and replace all of your equipment! The list is what I use and will be demonstrating with. It will be easier to do the exercises if you can bring supplies that are somewhat similar. These are my personal preferences. The only things I’d like you to bring verbatim from the list are the items under the ‘SKETCHBOOKS AND MARKERS’ section. We’ll do some of our most important studying using these. “Start strong end strong!” Looking forward to a great three days with you in beautiful Moab! - Lyn
