Instructor: Lynda Rimke

Now offering this two day workshop in-person at Gervasi Vineyard! Taught by professional plein air artist and Signature Member of Akron Society of Artists, Lynda Rimke. Inspired by the exhibit, "Ohio Small Towns: A Juried Exhibit of Paintings by Members of The Ohio Plein Air Society." Learn to capture dancing light and atmosphere at a beautiful pond landscape location with watercolor paint. Enjoy a demonstration and talk on Friday evening when the light is just right, then put those principles into practice with guidance from Lynda the following morning. Explore thinking through values and composition in a small sketch, then creating a pencil outline of your chosen scene and finally adding bold washes of color with suggestions of detail to anchor the mood in time and place. All experience levels welcome! Join the group afterwards for an optional lunch at The Piazza at Gervasi Vineyard to chat about your paintings with an informal critique.
