Year Round Plein Air Workshop Retreats
I offer Colorado plein air workshops year round (even winter) to explain the importance of experiencing one’s surroundings to authenticate one’s painting. I have come to believe the importance of being there, and savoring one’s surroundings, to make a painting tell the story of me being in that place, at that particular season, and sharing that moment in time. In Colorado the seasons are dramatic in their individual character. Yes, there is heat in the summer and cold in the winter, but there are ways to dilute the extremes of discomfort and get down to really seeing what’s offered out there. Oh yes, Fall and Spring can offer physical discomforts, but the importance of telling the story of what I see in the changing seasons is my way of slowing down and living in the moment. Welcome to my invitation to plein air painting year round.
