Chris Morel:

I will teach a 2-day Plein Air workshop in Santa Fe NM, October 27-28, 2021.

The workshop is for all skill levels from beginner to professional. We will work outside on location starting and completing both a morning and an afternoon session.

I will start the workshop with a quick demonstration highlighting processes and techniques of plein air painting and then students will get started on their pieces.

I’ll focus generally and individually on helping students improve from your current skill level to the next.

We will touch on all aspects of painting outside: from choosing subject matter, composition, value, color mixing and application.

We will work with a basic split primary palette of colors plus white. (Warm and cool versions of the primary colors Red, Yellow and Blue).

All you will need to bring is a great attitude, a desire to learn to paint from nature and your supplies. 

“Instructor Chris Morel has requested, for the safety of his students, that all participants taking his workshop be vaccinated”.

J Chris Morel is a landscape artist who skillfully captures the essence of the evolving contemporary West in his paintings. His training as an artist began at Towson University in Maryland, later working as an illustrator for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Austin TX. He began his full-time career as an easel painter in 1988 in Austin. In 1994 Morel and his young family moved to New Mexico discovering his new home and ultimate subject matter in the mountains outside of Taos where he continues to paint to this day.

Morel finds inspiration and guidance from the legacy of great painters of the area. He excels at discovering moments of light, creating compelling compositions and rendering ordinary sights into extraordinary paintings. His work is represented in Santa Fe by Nedra Matteucci Gallery, Wild Horse Gallery Steamboat CO and Morel Studio Vadito NM.
