Here in South Florida we're fortunate enough to be able to paint comfortably outdoors all year long, but in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere the world is waking up to Spring. Whether you're an artist or not, it's time to renew your acquaintance with nature and the outside beckons.
I'll be teaching a four day workshop at the Marco Island Center for the Arts next week, and it's not too late to sign up! The class is Acrylics and the Florida Landscape. We'll spend half of each day inside, learning the basics of composition, values, color, and beyond, and half a day outside painting at various sites on the island and in the Everglades. It's a lot of fun and we have a great time. Everyone learns, including me. Today's photos are from last years class. Hope you can join us! There's also a list of tips for painting outside on my studio blog.
