"Pastels en Plein Air" with Brenda Boylan
Saturday and Sunday, August 26th and 27th from 10-4 pm
$275 plus materials/Parking and Admission to Mission not included.
Additionally, Brenda will also be conducting a "highly recommended" demo at “The keyhole” at the Montage in Laguna Beach in the afternoon of August 25th beginning at 4:00pm to aid in a warm-up for the workshop.
Spend the mornings in this fun and highly educational plein air pastel workshop and the afternoon in the studio. Plein air painting has its own challenges and advantages, offering quick studies to beautiful finished works in just a few hours. Get to know the best practices, methods, materials, and how to select a scene that will cement your solid foundation of plein air painting. We will focus on how to build a painting through design, values, shapes, and color to jump start your plein air journey. Brenda will offer a brief demonstration each day to help you focus on the essentials of plein air. Additionally, there will be personal advice at your easel and we will wrap up each day with a group discussion/critique at San Clemente Art Supply.
