Plein Air Painting Workshop with Cheryl St. John in beautiful Mallorca, Spain!
Immerse yourself in the golden sunshine of Mallorca, Spain in May 2019! We will capture as much as we can with our brushes using impressionistic strokes of luminous color on the streets, in the gardens and on the shoreline of Mallorca. This workshop will focus on simplifying the scene and creating enticing compositions en plein air. Working in the morning and afternoon light on at least two paintings a day will give you plenty of reference for future work back in your studio and lots of experience working on location, in this most brilliant of places! 
Dates: May 1 – 8, 2019
Location: Fornalutx, Mallorca

stjohn.A-Day-in-the-Garden.8X10-oil.650Come and enjoy a beautiful day of plein air painting at the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens in Vail, CO with Cheryl St. John!

There are two dates to choose from, or join both! These one-day workshops will focus on plein air painting and how to simplify a composition and work quickly to complete a painting in under 3 hours. The goal will be to paint a small painting in the morning and another after lunch in the afternoon. The gardens are full of color so we will work on color mixing and getting the right temperature, which is a very important part of color mixing. Compositions can be difficult to find when there is so much to choose from so we will be looking for simple shapes and values to draw from and go from there to completion. Just some of these simple steps will improve your outdoor painting and you’ll soon be a pro at plein air painting!

Class will meet in the garden at 9 a.m. with a half hour break for lunch in the garden and continue until 3 p.m. Bring a sack lunch with plenty of water to enjoy in the garden.
