Plein Air Painting In Cape May (OUTDOOR) PT 605CM

with Joseph Sweeney


Join Joe Sweeney for an outdoor, in-person, plein air painting retreat in beautiful Cape May, New Jersey! Experience small town hospitality while painting Cape May Point, the Cove with sweeping vistas, Cape May Lighthouse, and Sunset Beach. Instruction includes tips on choosing a prime location, reading the weather and light at a particular time of day, and setting up a landscape palette. Morning and evening painting times will leave the afternoons free to relax on the beach – the perfect artist’s getaway! Instruction is geared towards oil, acrylic and pastel, but experienced watercolorists are welcome. Health-safety measures, including masking and social-distancing, will be practiced.
