Workshop description:

Along with short demos, Nancie’s workshops focus on individual attention for each painter. Her plein air paintings are carried to completion, which she encourages in her students. Decisions about composition and values are made initially and carried through the process when the goal is a finished product. Underpainting techniques will be shared to work with values and edges. Two to three paintings a day can be expected in the size most comfortable to the student.
