ARTIST: GREG BARNES
4-Day Plein Air Workshop
Soft Pastels and Oils
Greg welcomes students who are new to plein air painting as well as students with prior experience and provides individual attention to students at all levels. Instruction will range from advice on supplies to choosing a subject for your painting, the painting process, and adding final touches in your studio.
Greg teaches plein air painting the way he learned: By giving daily demonstrations and instruction at your easel. This format accelerates the learning process by first seeing and then by doing. While pastel is the medium Greg will employ in on site demos, oils or acrylics are welcome. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned artist, you will enjoy your experience with Greg.
We will be traveling by pontoon boat to beautiful venues on Lake Martin, where the banks are alive with the colors of native azalea and mountain laurel. Spring gardens cultured by Lake Martin dwellers, waterfalls, moored sailboats, and unique architecture are among the subjects we will paint at this most beautiful and peaceful time of year on Lake Martin.
