Structures & buildings can be very intimidating when working en plein air! My rapid methods will enable you to edit, speed-up and free-up your work!

We will focus on street scenes, bridges & harbors in the beautiful Cape Cod area and have indoor space nearby for our use should weather not cooperate.  One or two paintings (or more!) will be completed each day, depending on your comfort level.  Individual attention is stressed in this workshop rather than group lecture, helping you to get the drawing right. Short demos (1-2 hrs) will be offered throughout the workshop to help clarify techniques, as needed.
