Join contemporary landscape painter Megan Lightell for a day of painting in the vineyards of her home county of Coshocton, Ohio. Work will be done in the studio and en plein air to explore a variety of approaches to the landscape in oil. (Participants can choose to work in pastel or acrylic.) Emphasis will be on color theory, composition, value, and paint handling as artists work on multiple sketches and complete a finished landscape piece over the course of the day.
Painting sites are easily accessible without rigorous walking. Previous experience painting out of doors is not required.

Artist’s Statement I began painting landscapes out of a longing to return to the comfort, mystery, and silence embodied in the land I knew as a child. I have alternately found myself living in urban and rural settings, but regardless of my surroundings I am compelled to paint land, either as a reflection of my environment or as a depiction of a memory. more
