Acrylic Plein Air Workshop with Mary Dobbin


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Beginning and Intermediate painters will meet at specially chosen Blowing Rock locations to explore important aspects of Plein Air Painting. Mary Dobbin will explain and demonstrate setting up portable easels, selecting a view and creating “thumbnail” sketches. The group will discuss preliminary value studies and the beauty of using a limited palette. Mary will offer ideas on a variety of underpainting approaches for canvases or boards, and explain “blocking in” basic shapes. Participants will continue to develop and refine their views. There will be group critique each day with an emphasis on encouragement and insight.
