Event Details :

Enjoy early summer en plein air in this fun and inspiring course, and add to your painting repertoire. During this four-day plein air course, Nicola Tibbetts will offer demonstrations and individual critiques, helping you improve your skills and find your individual voice in landscape painting. Open air oil painting presents unique challenges to the artist as the changing light and unpredictable conditions require a specific technical approach in execution. This course will help you to render the essence of a scene through acute observation both intellectual and emotional. Course will include off-site classes that will be determined by the group during the first on-campus class.

Supply List:

Please come prepared with a set of oil paints which include: burnt sienna, burnt umber, yellow ochre, titanium white, ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow (middle), cadmium red (middle). If you have a transportable easel please bring it as well. We will supply solvent, medium, brushes, canvases, rags etc but please bring your own if you have a specific tool you like to work with.
