We are surrounded by water - be it lakes, rivers, the Intracoastal, or the magnificent ocean! It is tempting to put water in our artwork, but because of its fluid nature, very hard to capture.
The upcoming 3-day intensive workshop coming up at our studios will be presented by talented Florida artist Robert Simone. In this workshop Robert will demonstrate his techniques in the morning and then give personal instruction at your easel. You will use photo references to conceive and paint your favorite coastal scenery, such as seascapes, dunes, and beaches.
Robert Simone is a nationally known award-winning artist and Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists.
I personally know Robert from many plein air paintouts. He is a superb painter and a great all-round person - very easy to talk to. He is also informative and patient. I watched him paint and explain off the cuff during these paintout festivals, and admire his deft capture of the subject in front of him. You cannot lose taking his course! His objectives as an instructor are to encourage, inspire and inform.
