Colleton River Workshop


  • Colleton River Club 60 Colleton River Drive Bluffton, SC, 29910 United States (map)

Over the last few years I have spent hours upon hours painting the river from life. I have learned to use my brushwork to mimic the fluid texture of the water as it moves. This focus on painting the river from life has helped me produce several award-winning studio paintings.

For the first time, I would like to offer an exclusive river painting workshop at the Colleton River Art Center. During this three-day class I will share the many things that I have learned from my time at the river.

This entire class will take place in the safety of the studio. Unlike plein air painting where speed and direct observation are critical, the painting time in this class will address the ideas more thoroughly behind a good landscape painting. I will begin each day with a presentation of my working process. The attendees will also receive clear instruction on how to simplify the landscape in an expressive way. Paint quality, value pattern, and abstraction will all be discussed as valuable tools when used in landscape painting.  

Students may supply their own photographs or choose from the instructor’s images. All proficiency levels are welcome.
