Jensen Beach – April 2019

Plein Air/Outdoor Painting Watercolor Workshop

floridaMarch 30 – April 5, 2019…actual workshop is 5 days, 3/31-4/4

Have you ever painted outside among the waving palm trees?  Nature is all around, offering so many points of view, so many greens!!   Enjoy 5 days of watercolor instruction with some free time to paint and explore on your own. All levels of experience are welcome!

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, value. Day one, meet on location at River Beach Fish Camp cottages. We will paint in and around the ‘Key West’ style cottages.

When we work indoors (air conditioned), if windy or too hot, we will have specific lessons on technique and ‘how to’.

A critique or evaluation will be held afternoons to check progress and look for ideas for improvement on your personal style. Everyone is a beginner when it comes to painting! Don’t be shy! It is an enriching experience. Wine and munchies will be served during critique Day 1 and any days that we might return to River Camp location in Jensen Beach. We can gather to dine together if there is a night all want to stay on and ‘talk art’.

Accommodations : 6 nights        

We will be sharing guest quarters at the Jensen Beach Fish Camp, the Key West style River Palm Cottages. 7.2 acres, Indian River frontage…..Wonderful tropical vegetation….folksy/family style place, not a high end resort.Cottage cost will be divided among the participants.
