Painting coastal Color & Light

Join Eric Jacobsen and Michael Orwick in scenic Cannon Beach, Oregon, for 5 days of painting spectacular coastal scenery. The class will focus on infusing life and personality into your work, and will focus on the fundamentals of landscape painting. Open to oil painters of all levels.

Price: $124 per day or $500 for all 5 days
When: Mon-Fri, June 18-22, 2012 10-4 daily
Registration dates: Through June 18
Size: 12 people
Skills: All Levels
Where: Environs of Cannon Beach


You will learn the importance of observation rather than using formulas and recipes to paint what you actually see and feel. Through instruction, demonstrations, and critiques, this workshop explores composition and design, values, color harmony, brushwork and edges.

Each day will include a demo, a group discussion about painting techniques, materials and philosophy, and finally, individual easel time followed with helpful critiques.

This class will be followed by the Cannon Beach Plein Air and More event occurring on June 22-24, 2012. Eric and Michael often like to paint the light of the morning and evening best and always welcome their students to join them for informal sunrise/sunset paint outs (no extra fee).

Payment Options: To sign up for the workshop and for the class supply list and handouts, contact Michael at (503) 693-7639.
