Kevin Davidson was the instructor and I really learned a lot. Kevin is a wonderful artist (and instructor) that works in both oils and watercolor. For his watercolors, he usually works on yupo paper and is truly a master at it. He makes it look so effortless. I find it very frustrating.
For this workshop, he painted in oils. He did a demo for a little over an hour and then we worked on our own paintings with him giving us pointers. I find plein air painting just as frustrating as trying to paint on yupo but I'm glad I took this workshop and it does get easier each time I paint on site. It will never be my first choice in painting experiences because I have a very short attention span. By the time I get set up I'm usually ready to leave. Also, I enjoy my creature comforts of being in my studio, close to the kitchen and other facilities. : )
I am really happy with how this little painting turned out which will probably make me sign up for the next plein air experience with a little less kicking and screaming.
