Plein Air/Outdoor Painting Watercolor Workshop

Coastal Brittany, France 2024. Dates 9/19 Thurs-26 Thurs

Along the northern coast of France, in Brittany, we are heading for the Emerald Coast to L’Abbeye at Saint Jacut de la Mer. It is a conference center located in a historic abbey, in a lovely village on the banks of La Rance river. Neighboring towns of St. Malo, Dinan and Dinard are well known to artists coming to paint the locale. Mt St Michel is a short drive up the coast.

Would you like to join us? It is a historic and lovely part of France! Let me know if interested.

Most days, 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….. When we work indoors, we will have specific lessons on technique and ‘how to’.

A critique or evaluation will be held most afternoons to check 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.
