I love working on location and find that it helps me grow as an artist every time I go out. For my workshops, I like to do small studies on location. Students are asked to bring surfaces to paint on, sketch pads, and cameras to record their impressions of the location. We meet at a predetermined location at 9:00 with supplies. Each student can use what they are most comfortable with. We work until noon on the sketches then break for lunch and rest. We will meet again at 1:30 and paint through the afternoon until 4:00 when we break down and meet to go over our paintings/sketches. We address problems faced and possible solutions for the next day. In case of inclement weather I like to bring photos of the area for the students to work from inside. If it is possible I want the students to get outside and take their own photos concentrating on composition then bring them back inside to work on. This is only if the weather is not cooperating.

I usually do 2-3 day workshops and the final day in the afternoon before we break I will critique work with the idea that I give each student direction on what they might work on in the future. Students are not expected to create a masterpiece just learn how to see and register the atmosphere, color and sense of place.
