Additional Travel Info


My workshops are designed for all levels with a focus on painting from direct observation. Artists learn to quickly gather the necessary visual information needed to complete a painting in the field. Learning how to simplify a landscape and interpret color relationships is a primary focus but other fundamental concepts are also discussed including: how to compose and design a landscape, and the importance of values, shapes and edges.
