If you've ever wanted to try out live, on-location landscape painting (called "plein air painting" in the art world), this is the introductory class for you. During a 4 hour outing, I will explain and demonstrate all of the fundamental skills needed to create a beautiful painting from direct observation. Time will also be spent before and after we begin to paint on any instruction or recap needed, so total class time, not including travel to the painting location, may be up to 6 hours. This class can be scheduled for either a late morning or late afternoon time slot.


Having your own portable easel setup and materials is a requirement, and some prior painting experience with oils is recommended so that the naturally limited class time (the light is always changing outdoors!) can be devoted mostly to painting instruction rather than materials and equipment explanations. Please email me if you have any questions about materials, gear, or skill level.


Although the 1 on 1, private class format is perfect for an artist looking for the maximum amount of instruction tailored specifically to their needs, this class can be modified for small groups of up to 4 students, so if you've got some friends interested as well, feel free to ask me about group discounts!


Once payment is received, you will be emailed a download link for the class syllabus and supplies list, and I will contact you to arrange a date, time, and location in the greater Austin, Texas area at which to meet for the class.
