3 - Day Oil Painting Workshop, September 2010







I will once again be teaching a seminar at the Landgrove Inn, Landgrove, VT. It will run from September 10th to the 12th.



Last year's get-together was a fantastic time and we are looking forward to returning.



If great accomodations, unbelievable meals and hanging out with like-minded, artistic folks sounds good to you, you surely won't want to miss out on this!!



Visit http://www.landgroveinn.com/ or call 1(800)669-8466 for more info or to book your reservation.



IF YOU REGISTER BEFORE MARCH 31st, YOU WILL RECEIVE A 10% DISCOUNT ON THE TOTAL PRICE!! That's only $540 for the 3-night package, which is even slightly less than LAST year's price! That includes lodging, all meals and the workshops!!



A few spaces have already been filled, so don't delay and miss your chance!



Friday, Sept. 10th Project: "JANUARY MORNING" "This Winter sunrise is created solely with painting knives, which yields a very "impressionistic" result. The warm Reds of the barns played against the cool Blues & Purples of the snow shadows makes for a dramatic contrast. A great lesson in texture and color temperatures!"

Saturday, September 11th Project: "BASS HARBOR LIGHT, MAINE" "This is a rather detailed painting which features the Bass Harbor Light in Maine. The lighthouse stands bravely against an approaching storm. This will be a great lesson in blending techniques and fine detail!" Batten down the hatches!

Sunday, September 12th Project: "ADIRONDACK SUNSET" "The Adirondack region is a beautiful location to witness some spectacular sunsets. In this painting, Wilson will show you some great techniques for rendering believable, dramatic skies. It's easy when using a wet basecoat and large brushes! "

I don't know what it is, but I love paintings that have to do with a late sunset or even the night sky. :) These are great!

You and I are in the same boat on that one, Dawn!! It's that "sunset, early evening, dusk thing". It's a beautiful mood to try and capture.

Yep it is! You did a great job capturing that mood!

January morning is by far my favorite painting of these. What a fantastic image! One day when all of my college loans are paid off I will be able to afford taking classes and workshops again.
