Plein Air to Studio, Making Your Studies Work for You Indoors
This workshop is a combination of plein air and studio sessions. Students will begin on location outdoors making sketches and studies, grasping excitement, and capturing ideas. These sketches will then be used as inspirational resource materials for more-complete, slightly larger, studio pieces that remain fresh and inviting. Lori Putnam’s paintings are a personal and genuine response to a scene, and she encourages her students to learn to do the same. Participants will receive a free copy of Putnam’s booklet “Plein air, Right from the Start.” The workshop will include lectures and demonstrations, individual painting time, personalized instruction (perfect for advanced beginners, intermediate and advanced painters), and group discussions aimed to promote your progress. While demonstrations and advice on technique will be geared toward oil painters, artists who are more comfortable working in other mediums are welcome. Plein air experience is strongly recommended. Because Lori wants to share the beauty of Scottsdale’s surrounding mountains with you, please be prepared to drive to painting locations (approximately 35 minutes from school) during this workshop. www.loriputnam.com
