We will begin with a brief talk on how to choose the perfect spot to work from, then how to organize and plan your approach.

Demonstrations will be done to show how to use intuitive brushstrokes, use of colour and form; combined with a careful, studied approach to capture a moment in time, in a plein air environment.

Frequent one-to-one feedback over the course of the day will offer support and guidance to artists as they create a finished painting.
