Color and Composition Simplified

A Plein Air Workshop in Midland, Texas

Oct 8, 9 and 10,  2020

Join me in Midland, Tx for a 3-day workshop and learn to create stronger compositions.  We will learn how color plays an important role in your compositions as well as value, masses and edges.  Each day will begin with a demonstration and quick lecture followed by students painting the remainder of the day.  The class will be kept small, maximum of 12 participants with ample time for individualized instruction at the easel.  You will receive a supply list after you register.  The workshop will emphasize simplifying shapes and accurate color and value mixing.

The workshop is designed to encourage artists at all levels to attain greater mastery of their painting skills. 

The cost of the workshop is $375.  If you want to secure your spot or would like more info, please call me at 936-499-7170 or email me at fran@ellisorart.com.
