The focus of the three workshops is the same: finding a strong design, or composition, before you start to paint. Then learning to hold that idea, impose it on the landscape, rather that letting the infinite complexity of nature confound and dictate your result.
We will start a new painting each morning and afternoon of the workshop. In that way the steps of searching for, framing and designing your paintings becomes second nature. Building each new painting on the foundation of a strong composition will help eliminate reworking and overworking. You will find it dramatically improves your success rate.
Please download the application form and send it along with a check for $200 USD, made out to Atelier Saint-Luc, to 12240 Dorothy St. Los Angeles CA 90049. The balance will be due 60 days before the workshop.

This workshop is organized by the Blue Mountain School of Landscape painting (my father was a founding director over 35 years ago). The registration will open mid-January on a first come, first served basis. I have no influence over who will be accepted. You can watch their website (bluemountainpainting.ca) for the opening registration date.
Each participant will be responsible for their own accomodation. All three locations have a range of options for price. Each participant will be responsible for their meals although we will take lunches together and two or three dinners for those interested in eating together as as group.
If you have any question, please use the contact form.
