Seeking the Spiritual in Nature, a Plein-Air Painting Workshop

“Learn to spontaneously and freely express your love for nature in oils or acrylics. As artists we often hear that there is a right way and wrong way to create a painting. The truth is, there is only your way. The trick is in unlocking your creative potential so that your own inner vision can emerge. I will give you a basic framework upon which to build your art, sort of like laying the foundation for a dream home. Where you take it from there is up to you. This workshop is for those who want to capture some of the beauty of Northern New Mexico in a recognizable, yet highly intuitive and individual style. We will visit some of my favorite locations around the high energy, Taos, New Mexico area. I will give you encouragement and practical advice, based upon more than 30 years of working directly from life.” – Michael McClure
