Even a well seasoned gallery artist sometimes does not come home with a great painting while painting outdoors! Let award winning plain~air painter, and Professional Art Instructor John H. Burrow show you the ropes of painting in the great outdoors! We will meet at assigned locations throughout the area and paint outdoors together! Yahoo!

This journey will begin with an outdoor painting equipment overview... Some of the do’s and don’ts. Working in comfort, and with the sun on your side!

Your paintings will come alive and look more natural when learning how to handle color in the great outdoors.
