Plein Air in Oils

ARTIST: John P. Lasater IV

4-Day workshop
Beginner to Advanced Levels

A familiar name in the national plein air scene, John excels at design, sophisticated color mixing, paint application and edge-control. And now, with years of teaching under his belt, expect to be encouraged and challenged by his demonstrations and hands-on help.

John has been influenced by many artists: directly through workshops with Israel Hershberg, C.W. Mundy, and Carolyn Anderson, and indirectly through self-study of historical sources such as Charles Hawthorne, Edwin Dickenson, Georgio Morandi, James Whistler, Edgar Degas, Andrew Wyeth, Camille Corot, Diego Velazquez, and Italian and Roman historical art.

Workshop Objectives

  • Introduce you to new ways of approaching one of the toughest artistic subjects – landscapes painted outdoors.

  • Further your knowledge of wet-on-wet oil painting, and ways to use your tools.

  • Empower you to make better choices when deciding what and how to paint; choices that fit you personally and this place in art history.

  • Introduce you to painting larger canvases outdoors, and in multiple sessions.

  • Add nocturnal painting to your repertoire.

  • Learn new ways to conquer your emotional roadblocks.

  • Teach you about the history of outdoor painting, and how you fit in its current manifestation in the United States.
