BRILLIANT COLOR IN TUSCANY - PLEIN AIR TO STUDIO!
With Julie Gilbert Pollard
September 28th – October 5th 2019

PAINT IN THE MEDIUM OF YOUR CHOICE
DEMOS IN WATERCOLOR & OIL


This workshop will consist of a combination of plein air and studio painting. On excursions and on the grounds, paint stunning Tuscany en plein air. Studio painting sessions will involve the use of plein air “starts & sketches”, photography and notes, commencing to completing your plein air “starts” or beginning a fresh painting - as you choose.

Studio lessons will focus on:

· Maintaining the plein air “feel” and sensitivity in your painting
· Using your photo as inspiration rather than absolute visual fact
· Negative painting lessons for the watercolorist
· Paint handling lessons for the oil painter
· Creative use of color – color mixing - painting with green
· Using “color as value” (as seen in all three North Light books plus magazine articles)

Paint in the medium of your choice. There will be demos in transparent and opaque media, instruction at all levels as needed, critique as requested and lots of painting time. All levels are welcome and encouraged to join us in this spectacular Italian venue. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all!


Julie Gilbert Pollard paints in oil and watercolor in a fluid, painterly manner, a painting style that is representational, yet colored with her own personal concept and perception. She is the author of three Artists Network/North Light Books, including Discover Oil Painting and Watercolor Unleashed, plus nine videos and several additional publications.
She has given instruction in watercolor and oil since 1985 in numerous venues such as La Romita School of Art in Umbria, Italy; Cheap Joe’s Art Workshops in North Carolina; Saanich Peninsula Arts and Crafts Society in Sidney, B.C., Canada, Vale do Lobo in Portugal and Scottsdale Artists’ School in Arizona.
A frequent award winner, Julie’s oils and watercolors have hung in numerous juried and gallery exhibits and is a signature member of the National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society, Arizona Watercolor Association and San Diego Watercolor Society.
Julie loves to paint and share her studies and methods. “It’s an elusive image I try to express in my paintings – one I’m continuously striving for. This world of ours is often a frightening and mysterious place, but is filled with scenes and subjects that excite my eye and imagination! The magical allure of the natural world, and my reverence for it, compel me to attempt to capture its essence in paint.”
