Plein Air Painting Workshop with PAPNM Signature Artist, Michelle Chrisman
Michelle is represented by The Signature Galleries, Santa Fe & Scottsdale, AZ; among others. She is a long-time instructor at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu & New Mexico Art League in Albuquerque.
Learn to see and understand the principles of light in the natural world.
Building on the principles of how light works in the natural world, Michelle will help you go beyond creating a basically good painting, to giving your paintings life and expression, and helping you to find your own voice.
All mediums are welcome. Michelle is an oil painter who paints mostly with palette knives, creating impasto paintings. Two of Michelle's favorite quotes are:
"Paintings are only good if they are good in the abstract sense." Georgia O'Keeffe, and
"Painting on the edge of disaster." Dana Hooper, California Plein Air Painter
Bring your supplies, plein air setup and a packed lunch and get ready to enjoy a day of learning to see better with Michelle.
