Time: 9:00AM – 4:00PM
Plein Air Painting in watercolor with the artist and instructor Naomi Campbell This two day outdoor workshop is designed for both professional and beginner, using the traditions of watercolor paint within a contemporary context. Landscape and seascape painting continues to be a central part of the history of art in this century, engaging the viewer from multiple points of view today. While painting en plein air, students will experience strong explorations of the unique abilities of watercolor while applying several principles that include: perspective, value, color sensitivities, line, form and especially composition to make a powerful statement. These will be examined from several fronts while focusing on each student’s unique strengths. July 16-17 9am – 4pm $200 Naomi Campbell has painted in watercolor for more than twenty-eight years.
