Plein Air/Outdoor Painting Watercolor Workshop
Seacoast New Hampshire & Maine

 Monday through Friday, August 17 to 21, 2020

Watercolor in Portsmouth NH and along the coast of Maine! Come with me to paint the many faces of the Seacoast.  We will be working plein air in different locations, for 5 days.  Monday through Friday.  What and where shall we paint?  There is so much to see!  Each year we explore another facet of our own wonderful New England coast.  The challenge is to create a vision of the locale, and keep it new, fresh!   Come and explore !

Workshop Details:

Schedule of  locations : Lunches provided.

Locations to be decided on weather conditions, ease of parking, facilities, etc.

Schedule daily:

  • We will gather mornings on location,  set up, watch Doris demonstrate showing the theme for the day, then paint with guidance, or…total abandon, if you wish!.
  • Lunch break ( lunch on me!…just bring water or cold drink) …more painting time and then an eye opening critique on the day’s efforts. Learn your strengths and where to improve. This is one of the highlights of the day!
  • We then wrap up after crit, usually 3:30-4, but more like 5-6 on day one, due to late start.
  • Cost for the workshop: $400 for 5 days or $85 per individual day.
  • Hold your place and get on the daily schedule with $85 deposit. ($25 non refundable). Let me know your proposed dates for attendance.
  • Materials listed under classes on web site….let Doris know if you need paper (100% rag 140 lb cold press @5.00 sheet 22 x 30) or need to rent supplies.


A General Workshop list is on line under classes. If you are already a watercolor painter, bring your own choice of materials. Easels are suggested, but not mandatory. Stool if you with to sit, but there are always benches around….Squeeze paint before coming to location. Saves carrying tubes. Water is available most days, but I suggest carrying in water on Day 1, Thurs. Carts with wheels ok for all of these locations…..or pack your supplies in a tote for easy carrying.
