Bethanne’s plein air landscape paintings are known for their lush painterly quality. Loosely painted yet realistic, they have a timeless appeal. Using expressive brushwork and a finely honed sense of color, she creates a powerful image with both visual depth and atmospheric beauty.

In Bethanne’s workshop, “Expressing the Vastness and Reverence of the Landscape”, you will gain the tools and techniques for developing your personal style while simplifying the complex elements found in nature, to build a solid composition. You’ll explore your personal reactions to landscape while learning design, value, color, light patterns, atmospheric perspective, and (the fun part) paint application.

Bethanne loves to paint, juicy, expressive, passionate paintings, and to share everything she knows. Ask your questions! You’ll paint like a boss (prepare to squeeze out copious amounts of paint) and learn to keep your paintings fresh by analyzing and expressing the atmospheric effects of the day, not by trying to create a literal rendering of the scene. Prepare to have fun!
