Quebec City – June 2019

Plein Air Workshop –  Quebec City ’19

Dates: Arrival 6/12, Wednesday, travel day. Departure 6/17, Monday (feel free to stay on and explore more of the city!)

Quebec City, anyone?  How exciting to be going to a very European city, just a drive away! We hope to paint for 4 days, with time to explore the city as well!  There will be scenes from cafes, buildings, historic fort and parks.  Join me for a  Painting Adventures! Always a new place to explore!

Workshop Details:

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.

A General Workshop list is available under classes on the web site. If you are already a watercolor painter, bring your own choice of materials. Easels will certainly fit in the autos, so bring yours to paint upright. Sketchbooks and fine line markers are a must!
