ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:
Join Cheryl St John on a Plein Air painting adventure in Colorado this July. Cheryl will take painters, of all levels, to scenic spots in the Colorado mountains. The workshop will focus on working fast, to capture enticing compositions, determining value and temperature of colors, working with large shapes to simplify the scene and most of all having fun in the outdoors. The scenery will include mountain ranges, streaming rivers, silver and gold mining towns and it is the peak season for wildflowers so bring those reds, blues and yellows!
We will gather for a Happy Hour critique after the end of Friday's paint-out.
The workshop is suitable for both oil painters and those painting in watercolors.
