“Plein air painting with the figure with Dan Beck”

3-day workshop

Dates: October 6-9, 2022

Fee: $535

Location: Fort Worth, TX at E. Melinda Morrison’s studio

In this workshop, the student will focus both on plein air situations incorporating figures in the landscape. (in the event of bad weather, photo reference will be used).  Each day Dan will demo on the subject.

Dan’s intuitive approach to painting explores fresh ways to “see”, using the painter’s language of line, shape, value, color, texture, and edges. This workshop helps students explore their creative side in painting by employing essential visual elements to give their paintings both direction and hold together as an interesting design. Your experience in painting the figure and learning more about Plein air situations will be enhanced not only by integrating these “concepts”, but by giving you confidence to employ artistic concepts to challenge yourself and tap into your intuitive side.

In the event of weather, we will work indoors. For Plein air locations, students will be responsible for their transportation to each Plein air location.  The 1stday will be at E. Melinda Morrison’s home and studio, 5901 Whitman, Avenue, Fort Worth, TX 76133

Intended Audience: Intermediate to Advanced painters.

Time: August 7- 9  (Wed – Friday) 9:30am – 4:30 pm.
