Weathersfield Academy for the Arts, Plein Air Workshop. —October 2013I attended a 3-day plein air painting workshop in weathersfield CT. The class was taught by Jack Broderick, a well known CT painter. I have not had that much experience painting outdoors and all of it was unsuccessful. So I thought a 3 day workshop would be a great way to kick start my plein air skills.
It is a challenge to paint quickly enough in the changing light conditions and to not start chasing the shadows as they move across your subject. Also the physical challenge of painting outdoors in October … it was cold. It was a very successful weekend, and I will getting outside to paint more often.
