Plein Air Oil Painting with Lyn Boyer
3-Day Workshop:
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!

Plein Air Pastel with Clive Tyler
on Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Capturing the Light in the Pastel Landscape

In this class we will explore impressionism and abstraction style while creating representational Plein Air landscapes filled with light. Daily demonstration will touch on under-painting techniques, color theory, and back painting techniques that add mood and emotion into the painting. The goal is always to expand on Plein Air to create landscapes that are rich and painterly by using edges, bold strokes and color to bring freshness to each painting. We will work one day weather permitting work en Plein Air.  Throughout the workshop we will practice creating, not duplicating, as we work to capture the essence of the scene in a way that expands your potential as an artist.
