Plein Air Workshop – Quebec City
June 14-19, 2018 Thursday – Tuesday
Quebec City, anyone? How exciting to be going to a very European city, just a drive away! We hope to paint for 5 days, with time to explore the city as well! There will be scenes from cafes, buildings, historic fort and parks. Join me for a ‘first’ trip for our Painting Adventures! Always a new place to explore!
Please send your name, address, email and cell# if you are interested in this trip. Limited number of rooms reserved.
Each day, we will set up and work in a local spot.…selecting subjects and scenes that feel personal to you. Doris will do a demo to start the watercolor flowing and then everyone will paint together with guidance on materials, subject selection, composition, values…..And of course, perspective of buildings, realistic and/or stylized. We hope for perfect June weather!
A critique or evaluation will be held most afternoons, to check your progress and look for improvements on your personal style. Everyone is a beginner when it comes to painting! Don’t be shy! It is an enriching experience.
Each day, the location will be announced according to weather conditions.
