Outdoor Workshops in Beautiful Places
Be Inspired Outdoors!

My Painting workshops teach the classical approaches to painting the landscape outdoors. Leaving the studio to get back in touch with nature is so important in creating landscape paintings that feel authentic. I have chosen several exciting places to visit and paint. Listed below is some of the places we will paint. Join me for an outdoor painting adventure.
