North Florida Muse- Plein Air Workshop

Join Linda Blondheim at Fair Oaks Farm October of 2010 for a two day plein air experience.

It's been about two years since I taught a plein air workshop, so it's about time to do that again. My last one was at the Wood Farm in Evinston and we all had a terrific time there. This fall, I will be teaching at beloved Fair Oaks Farm, also in Evinston, FL. This farm is pristine and beautiful, with many amenities like indoor bathrooms, covered pavilions with tables for eating, a stage, where demos can be done,an upstairs studio and fabulous views. I'm going to be a bit more casual and flexible this time about the cirriculum, rotating between design, color mixing and value structure. We will study timing, with a quick start warm up, progressive paintings, always a good way to improve quickly, atmospherics,measuring, what to include, move around, and what to leave out. We will have a daily shop talk, Q&A session during lunch, and critique time too. I will squeeze in a demo on the first day, to last about an hour.I have structured this for advanced beginners through intermediate painters. I'm already excited about this one.
