Plein Air Drawing & Painting Workshop In Maine
for Oil or Acrylic Painters or Pastel

or other drawing media

Four full days of drawing & painting on Orr’s & Bailey Islands in Harpswell, Maine

Sunday, July 8 to Thursday, July 12, 2018

Notice new month, (last year it was offered in June)

Welcome Artists new and old to the seventh year of drawing/painting up in coastal Maine. Imagine painting on location with professional guidance, creating art each day on the coast where the light is clear and crisp and the views are filled with classic Maine rocks, ocean, and trees. The workshop will start with a demo to get students inspired. Students will have time to dive into their own work with my guidance. We will visit four locations which includes open ocean, beach area, docks and boats, and a rocky shore line. Students will learn how to simplify forms, develop overlapping areas of trees and rocks to create depth and color relationships in the water, sky, and land, and address

other compositional issues. Students will learn how to get going quickly with the set up and how to capture the scenery fast with big shapes, thus capturing a moment in time. Critiques, art discussions, and historical references are available. In bad weather, we will work inside or on the porch of “Crow’s Nest” lodging or at the Drift Wood Inn on Bailey Island. Each day, students will work hard, we will have a group critique, and then in the evenings we will relax and enjoy our stay
