About This Class

What This Class Is About

The focus with this class is plein air painting. I'm basically showing a variety of tips & techniques for painting outdoors on location. The lessons will inspire you to get out & paint your towns and landscapes. Studio work is necessary but there is nothing like being outdoors in front of your subjects. This is also a great opportunity for applying fundamentals & paint loose techniques I've shared in previous classes & lessons.

Who Is This Class For?

Anyone that wants to try something new. Painting outdoors is a wonderful experience that every artist should try and eventually make part of your routine.

How It Will Benefit You

Painting in front of your subjects is a challenge that will make you aware of your environment and introduce you to a world of fantastic subjects. What you will discover and learn is limitless.

I've been watching Robet Joyner's courses. I'm trying to relax and free up, and get back into painting. He is your man for that! Lots of enthusiasm. My 'normal' style of outdoor painting ends up more structured than his, and I probably won't change it all that much. But I loved learning that I can free-up and wiggle into the underpainting easier. That varied, colorful 'ground' (meaning the layer you paint on top of) leads to a lot of happy accidents, and that can make a painting very dynamic and fresh. If you have never painted outdoors it is wonderful--it's a must do, and I think this course gives you a killer desire to try. Thanks. B
