Summer Day by Mary Byron


We will paint in York Village & York Harbor.
Classes will be outdoors on location. We start with a short discussion of the method I use while painting in plein air and a short demo of how I start a plein air painting. Students will receive individual attention at the easel.

We will discuss what we are seeing and focus on choosing a motif and designing a good painting. Thinking and planning ahead makes the painting process more enjoyable. We will learn and have fun! Midday there will be a lunch break. The afternoon will start with a review and discussion of the morning paintings. Depending on your experience you can expect to paint 1 - 3 small to medium sized paintings.

The “PLEIN AIR WARM UP” class is recommended for anyone interested in the one day plein air workshop especially if you are a beginner to plein air and would like to be more comfortable with the painting medium and experience.
