Drawing is important and Nancy will show you simple ways to check the accuracy of your drawing. We will paint both in the studio and plein air (weather dependent). Nancy believes that with a firm grasp of the underlying principles of representational painting, an artist can move easily between the studio and outdoors.
Nancy works in both oils and acrylic, but is open to working with artists in any medium. She believe that technique is an ever evolving journey (and best learned though personal experimentation) , but understanding the underlying principals of how to observe and translate your observations to a 2-D surface is key to becoming a good painter. You will work with a limited choice of colors so that you gain mastery over your paint mixing before adding extra pigments to your palette.
Since it is such a short workshop, IT IS recommended students bring a bagged lunch so we will not waste time going out to eat.

I cannot express enough to you how much the last three days has meant to me. Your class was so informative and I was just in seventh heaven to be able to participate.You have such an incredible talent and I only hope to be able to paint on that level someday. You have certainly helped and I thank you for conducting such a wonderful class. Hopefully I will be fortunate enough to enroll in another one of yours in the future. – Gayle Barber
