Beaches, Gardens, Buildings and more! For many of us it has been a long time either not painting outdoors or painting alone. This Safari will let us paint the great outdoors again, safely and in a group.  6 weeks of Plein Air painting, in a small group, will happen all along the South Shore. A different location every week, so sometimes the vista will be right in your town and other times there will be a bit of a drive. Each week there will be a lesson on a particular aspect of painting outdoors – perspective, editing, controlling what is included, the effect of light on color, etc.  You should have a passing familiarity with your medium.  I will be painting in Acrylics, but also paint in oils and watercolor, and have taught students who use pastels as well. Join the Safari!!! Limited space – sign up early!
