This workshop led by fine artist, Karen McLain, is designed for participants who are familiar with working outdoors and are comfortable with their chosen media. This fast-paced day is designed to paint multiple small, quick studies to capture the immediacy and experience Assateague Island. As opportunity presents, we will paint the famous wild horses as subjects themselves and as part of the landscape. A demonstration and individual attention will be given.
A portable, (Plein air), easel is required. Please work with the media you are comfortable using. We will be working on several, 6-8 small quick studies, and will likely change locations several times during the day. The goal is to immerse yourself in the experience, paint with heightened perception, and improve your outdoor painting skills. Plein air experience is strongly recommended.
Limited to 12, participants will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience with plein air painting techniques from an expert in the field. Assateague Island National Seashore landscapes and wildlife will serve as your field study subjects. This class is one of four workshops that can be taken singly or as a complete series for a reduced rate.
