Nelson teaches Autumn Landscape painting workshop Oct. 21-25Published 9:43am Monday, September 16, 2013
The artists will concentrate on painting outdoors. There will be lectures and demos by Nelson and group “critiques” – mostly just putting the work up and having each artist say, “how it’s going.” If it is raining artists will stay indoors and decide if they prefer to work on still life or hire a model.
