Plein Air Retreat At Parker Ranch

3 Day Workshop $225

Stay together, paint together. The Parker Ranch  in Clayton Ga is a cozy gathering place. The owners, Becky and Paula have hosted my plein workshops several times and they always out do themselves to make sure everyone is comfortable.

Learn to capture the outdoor with a limited color palette. Working from the landscape is such a great way to improve your paintings, but it can be overwhelming when just starting out. In this class, I'll help you with tips and tricks to setting up, how to find your focus, and get started. Using a limited palette will help you with color mixing and creating harmony in your paintings.  I love the energy working outside brings to my paintings. 
1 - 5 Friday, 10 - 5 Sat, & 10 - 3 Sunday

Cost $225 Includes daily instruction and demos in the field and one on one instruction throughout  the day. Nightly social hour with wine and cheese
Breakfast each morning is provided by the Ranch with your reservation.
