Plein Air Watercoloring

Posted by gandrade



Let’s enjoy summer and painting together outdoors! This class will introduce artists to the methods and materials for working with watercolor. We’ll paint outdoors on gorgeous days and indoors in rainy weather. Painters who would like to review or expand their skills are invited to join us. We’ll explore drawing techniques and materials, mixing colors, painting tips, and finish a painting each week. We will visit several local sites together to paint outdoors.

Instructor: Elizabeth O’Connell studied art at Boston’s former Garland Junior College, and watercolor painting with Natalie Phanstiehl and Richard Grosvenor. She exhibits her work at local shops and at the cooperative store Made in Warren, Warren, R.I.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
