Plein Air Adventure

Have an adventure, discover beautiful and historic places in Pinellas county and learn the basics of plein air painting from a professional. Start with a viewfinder to choose the best composition and learn to make a value sketch, color study, mix warm and cool greens, reflections in water and cloudscapes. Class happens on a different site each week, starts with a demo then individual help while you paint, ends with a group critique. Make a completed plein air painting each class, and see the prettiest places in the county. Nocturne class included in each session, and exhibition opportunities. Sponsored by Ampersand Art
