Learn to create effective field studies and create plein air paintings that clearly say what we want them to say in our own unique voices.

Plein air painting can be a daunting task. From what to pack, or what NOT to pack, to how to compose a painting in the midst of all that visual chaos, it is important to be discerning. The key is simplicity. By learning to effectively edit all parts of the plein air experience, we can approach painting outdoors in a more confident and relaxed way. We’ll spend a little time discussing what to take with you into the field so that you’re no longer carrying more than is comfortable. We’ll also work on upgrading our field study sketchbook practice, since observation leads to familiarity with our subject matter and familiarity helps with decisions regarding both composition and content.
