Plein Air Workshop
Capture the beauty of Llano Estacado in this three day workshop on location.
Each day will focus on a different set of subjects: rustic outdoor scenery, verdant garden life, and clouds of the New Mexico sky.
Join Dick Wimberly in this outdoor painting class. Each day he will discuss painting principles and demonstrate techniques in his limited color plein air pallet. Participants will choose their subjects and be guided through producing their own works.
Attendees can expect to work on at least two paintings per day. After the workshop participants will have the option of hanging their work alongside a Plein Air Painters of New Mexico exhibition at Clovis Community College.
All locations will be in the Clovis area.
