Event Navigation

Nature can draw you in to paint it but many times all the shapes and forms are not in ideal places. Joseph can show you how to eliminate unneeded detail, simplify the composition and even change the nature of what you’re seeing. He chooses to interpret what he sees not copy it.

The first lesson will be at the Art Center with a brief demonstration, checkout of equipment and supplies, followed by each student painting a trial run landscape on the art center grounds. Subsequent sessions will be outdoor locations such as Payne Park and Ken Thompson Park. All media are welcome. Students will supply a small portable easel (or paint on your lap) with a limited palette. The key to painting plein air is keeping things simple. All skill levels, All Painting Mediums (Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Pastel) Feel free to call Joseph with any questions (941-924-9889).
