    Two Day Studio and Plein Air Workshop

    May 10-11, 2022 

    Instructor James Richards AISM

    Location: Fechin Studio at Taos Art Museum

    This workshop is an event during the Opening Week of 6th Annual AIS Small Works Showcase held at Wilder Nightingale Fine Art in Taos, New Mexico. 

    This is a unique opportunity to attend a two day oil painting workshop in beautiful Taos, NM, with American Impressionist Artist, James Richards (AISM). James is a multiple winner in the American Impressionist Society's Annual Exhibition, being awarded Best of Show in 2015. His work is best known for its expressive and often experimental brushwork, spontaneity, sensitive color and mystery.

    Day 1 will be spent with James sharing his concepts, ideas and techniques for creating loose, impressionistic paintings. This is mainly a teaching and demonstration day, with some student painting as well. Concepts covered will include planning and organizing your painting to allow for looseness and spontaneity. You will discuss how to turn the chaotic visual elements of reality into a visual language on canvas. In addition, you’ll also be working on creating color harmony while using a limited palette. James will provide photo references with information relative to the next day’s work.

    Day 2 will be spent working En Plein Air (weather permitting) while applying and sharpening the concepts and techniques from the previous day’s study. You will be encouraged to paint multiple pieces, with a focus on smaller studies.

    We look forward to you joining James in Taos, a place of endless inspiration, to grow your knowledge and understanding of impressionistic oil painting!
