Plein Air Painting Demo September 15
September 15, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm$20.00
PLEIN AIR PAINTING DEMO (SEPTEMBER 15, 2:30pm–5:00pm) • Mary Byrom $20
In this demonstration, Mary will reveal a simple process she has developed over many years to make painting en plein air easy and enjoyable, no matter the weather or conditions – how she chooses a subject, sketches the design for the painting, determines values, keys the painting, and does all her thinking before she even puts a brush on canvas. She will show how making important decisions before starting a painting frees one up to be accurate, loose, and expressive while painting. Mary’s streamlined, simple plein air process can be applied to all wet media: oil, acrylic, gouache, and watercolor. Demo begins promptly at 2:30pm.
Materials You’ll Need To Bring: No materials required. Attendees are welcome to bring a sketchbook.
