Plein Air Workshop
Award-winning watercolor painter Colleen Reynolds will share her successful approach to plein air painting in Carson City. This is an outdoor workshop.
Participants will meet Colleen at a chosen local downtown Carson City site for a 1-2 hour plein air demonstration. Participants will then choose a location to paint and Colleen will individually advise each person focusing on values, composition, and technique. The workshop will wrap up at Colleen’s studio with a group critique. In the case of inclement weather, the class will meet at Adam’s Hub (111 W. Proctor St, Carson City).
Colleen learned early on to narrate her life experience with art in the desert hills of Nevada. After a twenty year career with the navy she returned to college to earn a BFA in Visual Art. She is a renowned teacher and professional artist. In addition, she is the founder and presenter of “Watercolor Carson City,” a competitive competition in its third year, bringing talented watercolor artists to Carson City.
