Join George Van Hook for a 2-day plein air workshop in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of central NY. He returns there every June to capture the big-sky vista of rolling farmland overlooking many of the lakes. An added attraction is the historic Sonnenberg Gardens that are sure to excite participants for architectural and garden imagery.
George, a nationally recognized artist who has won numerous Plein Air competitions and awards for his oils and watercolors, for a two-day plein air workshop. George stresses alla prima painting, using a loose and fast approach to capture the landscape in the first try.
Participants will be meeting on location and painting all day from 9:30 am-4 pm with a lunch break. Workshop includes live demos and individual attention. Please bring your own plein air equipment, supports, and media (oil, watercolor, acrylic), as well as your own lunch.
A materials list will be provided by the Gallery at sign up. Currently, the exact Canandaigua or location is to be determined.
We will begin each day with a demo by the artist. At that time, he will discuss composition, laying out the palette, proper use of materials and all other aspects of plein air painting. We will then break up into groups and paint individually. He will then provide individual instruction helping solve the issues for each artist.
