Workshop Basic Description:
To ensure we are all on the same page, we begin with classroom instruction. My desire is to tailor my interactions with all students to maximize one-on-one instruction time. There is lots of on-location painting time, as well as demonstrations and personal critiques. We also talk about taking our sketches and going large in the studio.
Required Reading: Please read Chapter 3 of Carlson's Guide to Landscape Painting. Ideally, students should read the whole book. I try to do it once every year
