Plein Air to Studio, Making Your Studies Work for You Indoors
This workshop is a combination plein air and studio workshop. 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. Students will leave this workshop excited and ready to experiment more on their own. Students will be pointed toward meaningful, personal, artistic growth. 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 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. www.loriputnam.com
