 Plein Air Painting Workshop

with Steve Doherty

Workshop Dates: 3/11/2016 - 3/12/2016


"Painting is a journey, not a destination, and I deal with the same challenges that keep every artist pushing forward. My workshop is part the process of sharing my experiences with others who face the same challenges, especially those interested in plein air painting. I want to share what I've learned from interviewing artists, writing articles and books, painting outdoors for decades, and judging artwork for awards over the past 35 years. This workshop is my way of helping the participants utilize my experiences, with the best possible result being that both the novice and the professional artists will benefit from the technical information I offer and the sensitive responses I offer to their current work.

I will talk about working with oils, watercolors, pastels, or drawing supplies; and I will work one-on-one so people with any level of experience will benefit from the two-day program. I will demonstrate in both oil and watercolor painting without letting those demos take too much of valuable painting time participants will need for developing their own paintings.

We will spend the first morning indoors and then we will work outside near the RVCC building so everyone has access to parking, bathrooms, food, etc. If the weather is really awful, I can do my demos indoors near a window so we can talk about the challenges of painting directly from nature.

The price is $65 per day or $110 for both days, with member of the Rockfish Valley Community Center receiving a $5 discount off the one-day price and a $10 discount off the two-day price. I will send a list of the recommended supplies to those who sign up or inquire about the workshop, and I will be happy to answer questions you might have before you sign up."--Steve Doherty
