Plein Air/Outdoor Painting Watercolor Workshop
Lodi/Wine Country, California
You are invited to join my watercolor painting adventure in sunny Lodi, California. We will be painting scenes of the town and surrounding vineyards for five days in a row! Beautiful countryside and local color! And so much fun to paint as a group!
Level of Experience: Beginner through Advanced.
Time: We will start out for our workshop location at approximately 9-10 am each day. Locations will be selected based on the lesson for the day and the weather. Lessons will last until 4:00 in the afternoon.
Renowned New Hampshire artist Doris Rice is an experienced traveler who is constantly seeking out lovely places around the world to share her vast knowledge of plein air watercolor techniques. Each workshop is a complete learning experience, offering an introduction to watercolor materials and many techniques for using papers, paints and brushes to best advantage…How to develop your own style as you learn the principles and elements of painting…How to stir that right side of your brain to create exciting new images created from the inspiring material around you!
Each morning’s demonstration will give suggestions and guidance in composition and format, then the instruction moves you along to creating for yourself…working on an original painting each day. Afternoon brings critique time, when we examine the day’s thoughts on paper and see where you can go with the painting to bring it to a finish. It’s a cumulative learning experience, blossoming each day in a new way.
It’s really fun! Join us if you’re up for an adventure!
