Art in the Open, Ireland: Capturing the Essence of Place


As part of the annual Art in the Open Plein air Festival, Lori will be conducting an morning and afternoon workshop focusing on "Capturing the Essence of Place".

Just as important as painting one’s likeness in a portrait, so is capturing the essence of place and time in the landscape. It all begins with learning to really see what makes one scene unique by looking at specific shapes, movement, and color. The subject itself is much less important than the expression of its soul.

July 29th: Dunmore East , Afternoon Workshop - Complete instructor lecture and demonstration

July 31st: Graiguenamanagh, Morning Workshop - Beginning brief discussion followed by participant painting time with Lori’s guidance
