The Landscape Sketch (OUTDOOR) DR 605LS

with Roger Chavez


The oil sketch is a traditional way for painters to execute preparatory ideas and quickly capture initial impressions – perfect for plein air painting! Learn useful techniques for rapidly encapsulating color and form while working directly from observation. Select locations along the Schuylkill River will include beautiful Laurel Hill Cemetery and Bartram’s Garden. Health-safety measures, including masking and social-distancing, will be practiced.
