The Shelby Lee Galllery of Charleston SC is sponsoring my plein air workshop again this year. We will be painting in one of the most beautiful and historic places in America. 

We will have a "meet and greet" reception at the gallery on May 12th from 6:00 'till 8:00 and meet at different locations for the next three days for painting and instruction, so bring your plein air gear and plenty of canvases. We'll provide a light lunch for you and have a safe place to paint in case of bad weather. Day one will be at Shem Creek, famous for it's fresh seafood and views of the shrimp fleet and docks with plenty of sea birds for entertainment. Day two will be at the James Island County Park with plenty of marsh views and landscape opportunities, teaming with widlife, the famous live oaks, and Spanish moss. Day three will be at the Waterfront Park with the beautiful "Pineapple Fountain" along with painting scenes of people in the park, the waterfront, bicyclers, walkers, and plenty of exposure with you painting right before the public. The gallery will be having a reception and wet paint sale that night from 6:00 'till 9:00 and before you leave don't forget to leave your one best painting for the gallery to sell for you. All of this for only $325.00

I'll be doing demo's and instruction on a new and exciting
painting method with a tinted canvas and block stroke method as well as the traditional value seeking undertone and layering method. I'll teach you my own personal quick tack medium mixture and teach you to see and paint in light form and color. Your paintings will come out fresh and colorful with no muddying from overwork like so many others do when painting wet on wet.

Did you know that you will also have the opportunity to leave your one best painting at the gallery for the them to sell for you. What an opportunity to have your work for sale in a Charleston gallery.
