Erik Koeppel 3Day Plein Air Oil Painting Workshop:

Limited to 15 students.
 Cost $475.00

Erik Koeppel is a traditional New England based landscape painter who has become a leader in the revival of the techniques and philosophy of the Hudson River School. Regardless of your level of experience, the goal of this workshop will be to provide you with a thorough introduction to traditional landscape painting.

We will attempt to place ourselves in the mindset of the great Landscape Painters of the past. Students will discover a deeper understanding of how these old masters approached plein-air painting, how they composed the complexity of nature before them, and how they used a layered approach to greater capture qualities of space and form in the landscape. The three days will be intensive learning, including a demo daily, and a lot of paint time practicing techniques learned.
