Joseph Peller, artist, instructor at the Art Students League of New York, and grandson of Peller Estates founder Andrew Peller, is offering a two day ‘en plein air’ (in open air) painting workshop in the charming Estate Vineyards of Peller Estates and Trius Winery at Hillebrand.
Participants will explore the effect of outdoor light on color and tone as the vineyards provide the ideal setting to explore color design and composition. Developing compositional studies and responding quickly to the vagaries of outdoor light will be stressed. NEW this year, participants will have the option of working with the live model in outdoor light.
Participants are welcome to use mediums of their choice including oils, watercolor, pastel or acrylic. Previous experience in outdoor painting while helpful is not necessary; all levels of experience are welcome. The only requirement is an intense enthusiasm for painting in fresh air!
$395 (exclusive of taxes and gratuities) includes instruction, morning coffee and lunch on both days, as well as the wine reception overlooking the vineyards in our Wine Garden. Book your spot by calling 1.888.673.5537 ext. 2.
Guests of the workshop are welcome to dine on a three-course dinner menu at Peller Winery Restaurant at a special price of $59, exclusive of wine, taxes and gratuities. There is also an opportunity to stay at White Oaks Resort for a special rate of $159.00, exclusive of taxes, on Saturday June 22, 2013. Please call White Oaks at 1.800.263.5766 for reservations.
A materials list will be provided to the participants prior to the workshop. All sites will offer some protection from inclement weather.
