Explore the impressionist style with award winning artist Greg Barnes as your personal guide. Greg tailors his instruction to reach all levels from beginning pointers to advanced techniques. Working from photo reference materials and en plein air, the class will focus on capturing the essence of a scene through design, color harmonies, and intuitive interpretation. Whether your medium of choice is pastel or oil, it is Greg’s goal that you will continue to learn from the experience long after the workshop has ended.
Each day includes a 45-60 min demonstration and lecture by Greg, focusing on different aspects of producing a captivating landscape painting. The remaining time will be spent at your easel, painting from the view or subject matter of your choice. He will continually visit each easel as you paint, giving individual instruction and personal attention. The class will finish with a critique of each students’ work.
