Oregon High Desert Painting Workshop
October 12 - 15

(arrive by supper Fri. Oct.11; paint four full days; depart Wed. Oct. 16)
Diamond, Oregon

In this four-day workshop we’ll explore on-site landscape painting in the heart of Oregon's stunningly beautiful sagebrush desert. The workshop will focus on creating the feeling of big desert space through the development of subtle color relationships and abstraction of the observed physical forms – buttes, valleys, mountains, plains and sky. Through composition exercises we’ll delve more deeply into purposeful distortion of the seen forms of land and sky. The painting group will work out of Diamond in Harney County. Lodging and meals – scrumptious meals - at the Hotel Diamond. In October, the air will be a little cooler, the colors have Fall in them, and dawn comes a little later.

$420 for 4 days of painting. For more information, contact me by email, or call me at 503-201-2556. Once you register, I’ll send along a materials list and directions to the little town of Diamond, Oregon.
