This landscape workshop will emphasize working from life. During the workshop,  most of the time will be spent painting on location in Gold Canyon, Arizona, which will allow for closer proximity to painting locations. Dan will cover the process of gathering essential information and editing in the field. The importance of how to start a painting will be stressed since a correct start makes the entire process less difficult. Dan will  also cover the importance of a solid foundation in design, drawing, values and color. Students should come prepared with the supplies to do at least two paintings a day.

Individual attention, demos, and some laughter are included in the cost!


Portable easel and transportation required. Students are encouraged to consider accommodations in Gold Canyon, Arizona, which is about 40 minutes from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and over one hour from the School.
