PLEIN AIR PAINTING WITH PATRICK SAUNDERS
2 Day Workshop 9:00am - 4:00pm, Friday - Saturday
Explore the essential techniques for painting from direct observation with 2017 Plein Air Richmond "Best of Show" award winner Patrick Saunders. Learn to paint any subject, from the most simple to complex with one approach. Patrick will demonstrate the process of simplifying the subject and moving to finish as rapidly as possible in order to add more energy and excitement to your painting. Students will learn about composition, value, texture, color temperature and accuracy in paint application.
Each day will begin with a full demonstration, followed by frequent one-on-one instruction with students. Each day will end with a group critique in order to provide each student with goals and direction for future growth as painters.
Oil and Acrylic painters of all skill levels are welcome to this workshop. Sorry, we will not be focusing on watercolor.
Please come prepared with at least 2 of your preferred painting supports (canvas, panel, board, etc.) at least 9"x12" in size. A suggested materials list will be provided prior to class.

PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP WITH BETH BATHE
2 Day Workshop 9:00am - 4:00pm, Saturday - Sunday
Evoking A Sense of Nostalgia in Plein Air
"How The Heck Does She Do That?"
Beth Bathe, a nationally known plein air painter, and juried artist in the past two Plein Air Richmond competition. Her website is www.bethbathe.com.
Beth's painting style is unique, looking somewhat like a watercolor, or is it an oil painting? She uses Cobra Water Mixable Oil Colors in thin washes with a limited palette, using unconventional tools such as sqeegees and qtips along with her brushes. Her paintings evoke a nostagia of an old sepia toned photograph. Beth is highly influenced by Andrew Wyeth, and her subject matter is often that of the "vanishing landscape", buildings, barns and old towns of a time gone by.
Open to all levels, supply list available upon registration.
Please bring your own plein air easel/pochade. Plan on painting outdoors in downtown Richmond weather permitting.
