Workshop with Denis Byrd

Friday, Nov. 11th 10:00am - 2:00pm, 1200 E. Center St. Kingsport, TN in the Renaissance Arts Center building, 2nd Floor Room 239

When painting en plein air, artists are confronted with an overwhelming amount of information and a limited amount of time to paint. It is necessary to simplify the composition, colors, and many other elements in order to capture the essence of the landscape without being overwhelmed by details.  In the workshop, Denis will give you strategies for simplifying your work while painting en plein air and in your studio.

Denis will do a two hour demonstration and then two hour painting session for participants, outdoors if weather permits.

Complete payment form then return and complete entry form.  Thank you!
