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.

Sign up for this workshop on my web site HERE and for my virtual landscape painting classes.
