Plein Air "Tune-Up" with Kirk McBride

  • 17 Apr 2013

  • Snow Hill, Maryland
Plein Air painting can be overwhelming: dealing with the elements, changing light and selecting subject matter can all create barriers from creating a successful painting.

Kirk McBride will demonstrate how to organize yourself, your painting gear, and your thought process to make Plein Air painting a more enjoyable and successful experience. Topics will include choosing and simplifying subject matter, compositions that work, organizing your easel and palette, following a consistent step by step process in making a painting.

Kirk will do demos on how he creates a plein air painting and work with students on developing a systematic approach that works best for them. Artists will meet at Bishop's Stock in Historic Snow Hill and then paint outdoors in nearby areas (weather permitting.) In case of bad weather, we will work under shelter.

Experienced plein air painters will have their own supplies and easels. If you need supplies check Kirk's list on his website.

The fee is $175. For artists registered for Paint Snow Hill 2013 it is $155. Refunds will be offered only if cancellation is by April 1. Please use the link below "Register for the McBride Plein Air Workshop."

Feel free to call Bishop's Stock if you have any questions.
