“Plein Air, Watercolor and Acrylics”
Taught by Mark Mehaffey
Join internationally recognized, award-winning artist Mark Mehaffey for a Plein Air workshop on the picturesque grounds of Springmaid Mountain. The nearby forest, creek, horse barn, and Toe River provide unique subjects for artists. This workshop will begin with demonstrations in watercolor and acrylic paint and a crash course in the studio to review the fundamentals of color mixing, composition, and basic concepts. Participants will then apply their knowledge and hone their powers of observation as they capture the serene beauty of the natural landscape. After working “en plein air,” participants will be invited back into the studio to discuss and fine tune their works. All skill levels are welcome. Participants may bring either gouache, watercolors, and/or acrylic paints.
