We’ll see arresting views from the wraparound covered deck and the hot tub. We’ll have painting subjects from breathtaking vistas involving atmospheric perspective to closeups of wildflowers and creeks. We’ll have field trips including one to the National Park and another to a local small mountain town..

We had some spectacular paintings created during our week-long Maine Workshop, held September 8 – 15!
We all painted en plein air on our mile-long beach, painted from the deck above the beach at Chateau Mer, had demonstrations and critiques, and visited the Farnsworth Museum and Acadia Park where we also painted on-site.
We had four beginners (less than 6 months) that created some of the paintings depicted! We intensely studied the watercolors and drawings of Andrew Wyeth on exhibit at the Farnsworth Museum, and emphasized working from sketches and notes over working from photographs as did Wyeth. We discovered there are advantages!
