This workshop is lots of fun, and a comfortable way to try out plein air (outdoor) painting.
The first half of this one day workshop will be spent outside on the Stanford Hills Estate near Stanford, and the second half (after a delicious lunch), will be in The Tasting Room semi-outdoor restaurant.
In the morning, we will meet at The Tasting Room for introductions and a run through and demonstration of the process of plein air sketching and collage making. Then we will head outside to explore, observe and respond. We so seldom have the opportunity in our lives to just stop and look.
I will give you a series of exercises/prompts to get you looking at the landscape in different ways.
After lunch, we’ll stay in the shade of the restaurant and work on recomposing the sketches of the morning into collage artworks.
The Tasting Room is the perfect Overberg experience for an outdoor painting adventure with creature comforts.
All materials and lunch are included in the workshop.
Please make sure you bring a sunhat, sunscreen, an apron (or just wear clothes you don’t mind getting a bit of paint on), bottle of water and if you want one, a camping stool or chair. There are various benches and chairs available to sit on in the garden around The Tasting Room, but if you want to venture a little further into the vineyards or up the hill, you’ll need to bring your own chair.
