Do you appreciate spontaneity and expressiveness in paintings? Do you want to paint more “loosely”? We’ll be focusing on this very goal during this workshop. Explore the impressionist style with award winning pastel artist Greg Barnes as your personal guide.

Greg tailors his instruction to reach all levels from beginning pointers to advanced techniques. Working from photo reference materials, the class will focus on capturing the essence of a scene through design, color harmonies, and intuitive interpretation.

Each day includes a 45-60 min demonstration and lecture by Greg, focusing on different aspects of producing a captivating landscape painting. The remaining time will be spent at your easel, painting from the view or subject matter of your choice. He will continually visit each easel as you paint, giving individual instruction and personal attention. The class will finish with a critique of each students work.
