All Mediums Welcome with a focus on oil or pastel in demonstrations. This class is geared towards intermediate or advanced level painters.

During this 3-day workshop you will discover how to see beyond the obvious within the plein air landscape, and use expressive color to capture the essence of mood and atmosphere in sky, water, and more. You will learn to see the depth of color and create a unique and personally expressive plein air painting.

Susan is skilled in all mediums, with an expertise in both pastel and oil, and is a Dedicated Workshop Instructor for Gamblin Artist Colors, a Jack Richeson Certified Instructor, a Sennelier Demonstrator, and a 40 year seasoned plein air painter, that will lead you to your personal color expression in the medium of your choice. Each day will begin with a short demo focusing on methods that will aid in color expression.

Susan’s goal as an instructor is to connect and inspire each artist. Studio demos will support transitional skills from studio experiences to plein air painting.

This workshop will be geared to the artist’s goals. “Thumbnail Sketches” and their importance in supporting strong compositions and values within color, will help you “Target Focus” on what inspires you in the plein air landscape.

There will be paint out opportunities following the morning demonstrations each day. Susan will support your skills and guide you to new discoveries.
