Plein air painting can be extremely challenging and rewarding at the same time. I know how easy it is to lose control of one’s palette. In this workshop you will learn how to take control of your palette, color mixing and how to optimize your palette for hassle-free painting. We will paint side-by side so you can follow along every step of the way.
