“Café in Troyes France,” by Saluda artist Jim Carson, is one of the paintings inspired by Carson’s recent three-week plein air painting trip to Paris and the surrounding countryside. Carson will give a plein air (outdoor) workshop in Saluda, Thursday –Saturday, Oct. 25-27. The workshop will focus on simplifying the landscape, values and the use of bold and spontaneous brushwork. It is open to all levels, from beginners to advanced. Carson has been offering plein air workshops in and around Saluda for more than nine years. He is an experienced and nationally known plein air painter, having been juried into some of the most prestigious plein air festivals in the United States, including Door County, Wisc., Easton, Md. and Richmond, Va.
