The Plein Air Class session credit Flash Sale is over. My apologies to those that wanted to sign up at the discounted rate. The good news is that I will be having at least one more sale before the plein air season begins in April. Keep checking my classes page for details.
Here is another Arboretum/Foster Island piece that was done in 2001, working alongside my plein air class. It is a location that we will return to this coming plein air season.

I’m currently having a Flash Sale for Plein Air Painting session credits, with savings up to $180. There is a counter on my Classes page that is counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds that these discounts will be available. You can BEAT THE CLOCK by signing up right away!
Plein Air session credits can be used during the painting season, from mid-April through late October. Classes meet Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday, from 10 AM to 2:30 PM. Session credits are not lost if you miss classes. You can attend those classes that fit your schedule. Unused session credits will be applied to the following year’s plein air season. If you have ever wanted to try painting in the open air, or want to improve your skill and understanding, this is a good time to sign up!
You can view the countdown clock on my Classes page, or at the bottom of this page.
I’m looking forward to better weather, and further excursions into the world of plain air work. This particular piece was done at Fishermens’ Terminal in Seattle, and became the study for the much larger painting of the same name.
I plan on offering a few more “flash specials” in the coming months, so if you are interested in studying landscape painting in the open air, keep your eye on this page. Announcements will be forthcoming.
If you have considered taking a Plein Air (open air) painting class, or would like to give classes as a gift to a loved one, now is the time to sign up. I’m offering a special from now through New Year’s Day 2015, 8 Plein Air Session Credits for $250 (normally $380) and 16 Plein Air Session Credits for $500 (normally $680.)
Classes are held in the Greater Seattle area, including the Eastside, Snohomish and Snoqualmie areas. We meet for four hours per session, usually from 10 AM to 2:30 PM, with a half hour for lunch. You are not required to take all classes, and do not lose session credits for missed classes. Unused session credits carry over to next year’s Plein Air season.
Classes include ongoing demonstration, frequent critique and hands-on instruction. Information covered includes advice re. equipment and materials, setting up the palette for plein air, composition, color, and other matters, with frequent reference to historical examples.
The Plein Air season begins approximately mid-April and goes to approximately mid-November, depending on weather conditions. Last year we had over 30 Plein Air Sessions during the course of the season. Class fees do not include equipment or materials. Please see my Classes page for further details.
