Fall Workshops 2012

I have two workshops coming up in the next few months. In my workshops I work very hard to preserve the participant’s style of painting and help them get through to the next level wherever they are at in their career. Some of the things I cover are general approaches for making a painting, organization, color theory, paint application, edges, and drawing.  For more advanced students I work to get their ideas focused and to find the truth and emotional content of a scene and how to express their singular vision with maximum impact.

Wilmington Waterfront


The first is in Wilmington North Carolina, October 12-14. This will be sponsored by Nelson Fine Art.

Denise Smith and Sandy Nelson, the owners have invited me down to teach a three day workshop.  That area has some great places to paint like Greenfield Park and Airlie Gardens, the Wilmington Waterfront and I’m looking forward to seeing that part of the state again.

Greenfield Park

Next I’ll be in Saint Simons Island Georgia again. The dates for the workshop are October 29-November 1 through Anderson Fine Art Gallery and we already have quite a few people signed up for this.

 Some of the places I’ve painted in the past include Christ Church and the cemetery grounds, Fort Frederica National Monument, Gascoigne Bluff, Jekyll Island, Darien, and Fort King George. There is a lot of rich history on the island and the surrounding areas and painting the Golden Isles is always fun.
