Capture the vitality of nature through plein air painting and bring this energy into your studio! Using plein air paintings as reference materials in the studio gives us more to respond to, visually, compared to photographs. This class will focus on making plein air painting an easy and effective way of gathering visual information from the landscape and how to transform these works into finished studio paintings. Open to all oil and acrylic paintings who are ready to get outside and paint!
