Description: Studying and applying the Intent, Design, Emotion and Awareness (IDEA) in Plein Air painting.
Focusing in on these four IDEA areas in Plein Air painting (areas often overlooked and undervalued) will increase an overall mindfulness during the seeking stage (what to paint and (why paint that) and during the entire painting process, which I’ve found directly transfers to increased quality and viewer connectedness. My method of teaching is through a combination of demo’s, lecture, one-on-one instruction and coaching, all with massive amounts of encouragement for those things being done right, as well as direct feedback for areas not perfected yet.
Medium: All Mediums, but demo’s will be done in watercolor and oil.
