Waters Edge-8x6


today i was teaching a one day workshop in jacksonville nc on the cape cod underpainting technique. we spent the morning learning the concepts painting colored blocks under floodlights and then we went outside after lunch. i did a short demo painting a couple of the neighborhood houses and then the class got busy on their own "studies"
Wow did they do great! you could see the sunlight and lighting key in each of them. in just a few short hours.

Here's the troopers bearing 100 degree heat to paint plein air. thats dedication.

just another day painting in heat that was more like august than the middle of june. but fun was had by all and everybody got the concept of underpainting in the cape cod school technique.

Want to paint in Tuscany Italy ten days this fall? Contact me and i can give you the scoop on my plein air workshop in Poppi just outside Florence. We'll cover the finer points of painting outside landscapes in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I only have a few spots left so let me know before its too late.
