Art teachers often complain their students just don’t use enough paint, with the result being their paintings wind up with oil colors that are overworked and dull. George is brilliant at maintaining luscious, shimmering, thick qualities of oil colors that accurately describe the figures, barns, shorelines, clouds, and vegetation in his painting. George has won top awards in many plein air festivals and competitive art exhibits; and he is one of the liveliest, skilled, and passionate artists working today. Depending on the weather, George will either work from in the studio or he will set up outdoors. The point of his workshop is to see and paint any subject accurately and expressively. George will stress alla prima painting and the use of loose and fast approaches to capturing the figure or landscape in the first try. Please bring your own plein air equipment, supports, and media (oil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic).  A materials list will be provided after registration.
