Plein Air Painting Essentials

July 21 - 22, 2018
River Arts, Damariscotta, ME

Join artist Philip Frey for a unique plein air workshop designed to teach the essentials of plein air painting. We will begin early, painting on location each day. Emphasis will be placed on perceptual painting, finding a good location, setting up for ease of use, and learning the elements of good design through specific lessons and limited palettes.

 

What Philip's students say about his teaching:

I have taken several of your workshops and initially thought that they would be redundant but I was wrong. Your different approaches to plein air, figure drawing and still life kept each fresh and challenging. I enjoyed each one and learned new concepts as well as reviewing old ones.

Philip is a delight to work with, giving freedom yet challenges to students of all levels, based in a deep knowledge of expressionistic landscape painting.
