Plein Air Workshops at Emerald Art Center

The last of the Emerald Art Center workshops for the year are coming up soon. Ron Ranson's workshop is September 24-28 with a demo Wednesday evening, Sept. 26th, at the Wildish Theater in Springfield. This workshop is not plein air but he does paint wonderful landscapes, and his "big brush" watercolor technique works well plein air.

Humberto Gonzales at Ona Beach, July 2006.

Humberto Gonzales' workshop is October 6-8 with his demo on the evening of Saturday, October 6, at the Emerald Art Center in Springfield. This workshop is all outside. Humberto paints large (full sheet) lose watercolors.

Both of these instructors have taught here at the EAC last year and both got rave reviews from their students. I have attended workshops by both of these artists and I really learned a lot from each of them. I am signed up for Humberto's October workshop.

Details about how to sign up can be found on the EAC website:http://www.emeraldartcenter.org/workshops.html
or by calling the EAC at 726-8595.
