Join Me for an Outdoor Watercolor Workshop on Friday, July 18th

Painting Summer Greens & Trees Watercolor Workshop at Ringwood Manor

Wed, Jul 16th, 2014



Join me this Friday, July 18th for my Painting Summer Greens & Trees Watercolor Workshop at Ringwood Manor! It will focus on tree shape-making and how to mix the many values of green in light and shadow.

I'll be giving a brief demo and guidance on how to approach outdoor sketching after which you'll have an opportunity to paint. Be sure to bring your painting materials which should include Cadmium Lemon Yellow and French Ultramarine. I'm bringing my French easel. A watercolor tripod easel works well too, otherwise a portable stool to sit on while you paint will do just fine.

We will meet at the parking lot to the right of the guard house as you enter the park. Ringwood Manor State Park is located at 1304 Sloatsburg Road, Ringwood, NJ. The workshop will begin at 9 am and end around noon. Tuition is only $40. Click here for more information or click here to download a PDF application form.

I will not be teaching during the month of August at the Ridgewood Art Institute, classes will resume there in September.

Looking forward to seeing you Friday at Ringwood Manor!
