Come join in the fun of painting out-of-doors the many inspirational scenes around Lake Minnetonka in Excelsior, MN with Nancy Carney and her colorful palate and whimsical people. Nancy Carney, former MNWS member, had a studio and gallery in downtown Minneapolis where she taught painting for many years. Since moving to the Lowcountry of South Carolina two years ago, the scenery has changed, but her love of plein air painting has continued. She would love to share some of her techniques with you in this two-day workshop. Her web site is: www.nancycarney.com

Day One

  • Simplifying and Editing the Scene with Classic Compositions
  • Why Strong Values Are of #1 Importance
  • Painting on location, weather permitting
  • Gentle Critique and Sharing

Day Two

  • Some Techniques for Adding Collage to Your Paintings
  • Adding Simple Human Shapes for Focus, Interest and Scale
  • Painting on location, weather permitting

Students will meet at the Southshore Center each morning for classroom instruction, drive the short distance to Excelsior for outdoor painting. The last hour of the day will be spent back at the classroom to look and learn from each other’s work. This techniques class is for those with some watercolor experience. Number will be limited to 15.
