There’s nothing quite like painting outside. In this class we will talk about being prepared for all sorts of weather while being right in front of the motif— even as it shifts with the changing light. We will talk about ways to embrace the changes in the landscape and strategies for making long term and short term paintings from observation, studies, and invention. We’ll go over practical options for gear to bring when painting outside and we will also discuss more cerebral topics like when to be faithful to your observations and when to be true to one’s personal vision.
