Another great workshop: Phillipe Gandiol Intro to Plein Air

So--the weather was inclement, but artists still learned how to set up their equipment, organize their palettes, and edit their subject matter for outdoor painting. 

When painting en plein air, there's alot to consider.  Phillipe helped each student with  different aspects of painting that are applicable to both indoor and outdoor painting. 

A fabulous teacher with a keen eye for individualized instruction, Phillipe shows his student a way to express the idea she is trying to achieve.  It was a wonderful two days of painting, in spite of the rain and even though we never made it outside due to the inclement weather, everyone left the workshop with ideas and approaches they could take with them when they do go outside to work en plein air.
