Michael Orwick Workshop To Kick Off Plein Air & More Festival in Cannon Beach

Michael Orwick Workshop To Kick Off
Plein Air & More Festival in Cannon Beach
Spend Three Days Painting
Coastal Color and Light on the Beach

Cannon Beach, OR --  Oil painters at every level are invited to join Michael Orwick June 22-24  in painting some truly spectacular scenery. This workshop will lead into the 3rd Annual Plein Air & More Festival June 24-26 with more than two dozen artists celebrating this artistic style as they create art on location throughout the town and on the beach. The featured artists’ finished works will be showcased at gallery receptions on Saturday evening and at a group show at the Cannon Beach Chamber Building Sunday afternoon.

Orwick’s workshop will focus on the fundamentals of landscape painting while exploring the beauty and atmosphere of the area.
He will stress the importance of observation rather than using formulas and recipes to paint what you actually see and feel. Students will also learn how to recreate some of the constantly changing atmospheric situations offered by the Oregon Coast.

Each day will include a demo and a group discussion about painting techniques, materials and philosophy, and individual easel time along with helpful critiques.  Students are also invited to join Orwick for informal sunrise and sunset paint outs at no additional charge.
