I painted this on a perfect day. I had more fun outdoors enjoying what the southern nature allows us to gratefully take in. I had fun creating this oil painting to say the least!
Good morning everyone! I wanted to let you all know that I will be holding a plein air painting workshop in the near future.
This is going to be a plein air workshop, Saturday and Sunday, April 16 and 17th. It will include the basics of on location painting techniques…instruction in color, design, composition and how to get the most of being on location. This is an intense, straight forward approach and I will answer any and all questions regarding plein air painting.
We will paint the beautiful Mississippi landscapes that surround my studio in Bailey. My mission statement is to teach as much as possible in a 2 day workshop and send each and every student away with a better understanding of what plein air painting is all about. The workshop will include painting demonstrations, critiques, group and individual instruction. A block of rooms at a local hotel will be reserved at a discount. There is limited enrollment so reserve your place now. The workshop is $200 plus your hotel room with a nonrefundable deposit of $100. Upon enrollment, a materials list and hotel information will be provided. SIGN UP NOW – limited enrollment.
This is a 16×20 oil on panel of a sunset i did last summer in Lauderdale County, Mississippi. Typical of the land there its a flat horizon with a red clay road leading off into the sunset. All of of the piece is done with a palette knife, and impasto paint. I never tire of doing sunsets…they’re like fingerprints, no two alike!
