Breathtaking views! 
What else can you say about this wonderful location. Simply one of the most spectacular places I have ever painted. 
Each time I paint, my goal is to capture the particular mood of the moment and to express myself in a bold and colorful way and while capturing the beauty and spontaneity of nature. Putting passion and emotion into a painting is far more important then just making a copy of your subject.
Depending on your level and goals we will try to develop a program for improving your ability as a painter. My goal as an instructor is to give my students the foundation necessary to express themselves.
    Some of the things we will cover are:
  • Stroke angle and how it affect depth in thick loose strokes
  • Properly holding a brush to ensure you have limitless possibilities with your strokes
  • Brush speed
  • Time management and capturing the moment
  • Forget formulas and learn to ?SEE?: Learning see nature as paint.
  • Color temperature
  • Harmony
Each day will end with a group critique.Columbia River Gorge
