Day #3 of Painting by the Pond 2016. This week long summer workshop, now in its 3rd year has our largest group to date with returning painters who have worked with me before, as well as new people with varying levels of experience in front of an easel.
I enjoy working with such a range of styles and experience. My goal is to help each person develop the skills that they do have, learn to truly look at the changing pond life and interpret it in their own way, as they also learn and are encouraged and inspired by each other.
I love sharing my beautiful backyard and beloved pond life and make sure that there are lots of tunes on the outdoor speakers, cold drinks, snacks and plenty of sunscreen!
It’s exciting to see the work develop day to day.
Each session ends with a group discussion. The day’s work are arranged around my studio on easels and table tops for a good look, suggestions and lots of enthusiastic support.
