“Oil and Watercolor Plein Air Painting Workshop in Spain with Julie Gilbert Pollard”
Dates: 7-day workshop, May 14-21, 2022
Join Julie Gilbert Pollard for a wonderful week of plein air painting on the beautiful coast of Northern Spain, the Costa Brava, near Barcelona!
Let Spain seduce you! Costa Brava, where the mountains meet the sea, is the setting of this exciting painting tour in the province of Gerona. Craggy cliffs, sandy coves, pristine beaches but also medieval villages and botanical garden, all await to be painted and experienced. This region was also the home and setting for the surreal world of Salvador Dali. The magical Barcelona will also be part of this unique plein-air painting workshop in Spain.
Class Description: In this plein air workshop, you will visit inspiring locations, learning to interpret them into your personal visual expression. Expect sight-seeing, photo-sketching, sketching and “light” plein air painting using minimal equipment that is easy to carry in a medium-size backpack”.
“During the plein air sessions, I will alternate watercolor-on-paper and watercolor-as-prep-for-oil painting demos on canvas boards pre-coated with Watercolor Ground. I will demonstrate and coach you through methods and techniques that have proven invaluable in learning to distill a scene into its most simple format, leading to studio paintings that retain that illusive “plein air feel”.
All levels are welcome. Classes will be small, so Julie will have ample time to help students work toward individual goals.
