Plein air art is the French expression "in open air" under natural light. This painting technique workshop will be done with oil on board using impressionist style.

Leaving behind the 4 walls of my studio we will experience painting Lake Brittle landscape around us. Working with natural light and its changing qualities.

We will be painting close to my studio in the Brookside community by Lake Brittle, Vint Hill Farm.
- This event is weather permitting, if the weather is not accommodating we will retreat inside my studio for the landscape impressionist workshop.

What you need to bring along;

  • Your own outdoor easel

  • A hat & sunblock

  • If you don’t own a outdoor easel I would recommend this easel from Amazon as it can also be used as a table easel

  • If you don’t have an easel, I have 2 extra, confirm with me if want to use one of mine

  • If your inspiration works better with wine you are welcome to bring your own :-)

Instructions to paint will be done step by step with help from me. We will be using realistic colors to bright colorful colors using your interpretation. I will guide you to the end to help you create your own master piece.
