Come and join award winning plein air painter Michael E. Vermette and paint from the Artists Trail in Rangeley, Maine. In this Plein Air Oil Painting workshop you will hike to one spectacular conservation area each day and paint in outdoors in the unique geographical wonders of the Hatchery Brook Preserve, Small Falls and the falls found at Cascade Stream Gorge, the panoramic views of the South Bog and the hidden jewel of Rangeley Lake and the Height of Land. Michael will demonstrate each day and guide you through the technical and fundamental approaches used to successfully paint these unique Maine landscapes. There will be lots of personal one–on-one instruction from Michael’s generous and approachable style of teaching and daily group critiques. Absolutely no experience in painting in oil outdoors is required, although experienced oil painters are welcome to participate as well.
