Plein Air Workshop for Oil/Pastel with Charlie Churchill
I am so excited to be going to this workshop for the next 4 days. My favorite teacher and private instructor Charlie Churchill will be teaching it - so I know I'll be in good hands. This workshop will be held in historic Cape May, NJ and designed to help artists achieve Old Master-like effects with contemporary materials and techniques.
I haven't painted in plein air (french expression for "in the open air") so this will be a fun challenge, working on site. I never really thought about painting outside before, I guess because I like the convenience of my indoor set-up; my laptop, painting to music and my coffee pot plugged in – but the thought of setting up in remote area, surrounded by natural lighting and fresh air sounds pretty amazing. The weather here has been a bit cold and rainy so I will be praying to the Sun God for some sunshine and good weather.
And so... I pack my french easel, my paints, my camera and my umbrella in hopes of coming back with some good work to share ♥
