I'm teaching a plein air painting class in Nashville, TN April 5-8 through the Chestnut Group. This is a great organization of landscape painters who are working to preserve land in Tennessee. My class will focus on improving your plein air painting by teaching you to be smarter in how you approach a new canvas, and also how to be more efficient in your painting process. These things add a freshness to your paint handling and can improve your sense of color. Each day starts with a short demo and a discussion of a different idea. From there I will have an exercise for students to focus on for the day. We'll talk about design, paint handling, and capturing light through color relationships.
