Painting Central Park: Weekend Workshop, Oct 3 & 4

This two-day workshop will introduce intermediate and advanced artists to an exciting approach to painting the landscape. Working on site in the diverse landscape of Central Park in New York City, artists will learn how to quickly launch into a plein air study in a bold, abstract way, and then develop refinement, subtlety and finish. Form, light and shade, paint handling and color will be discussed through one-on-one critiques and demonstrations. Instructor Christopher Gallego has been teaching group and private classes for over fifteen years. Gallego’s work has appeared in over a dozen major museums and many more gallery exhibitions nationwide, and has been featured in Art in America, the New York Times, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Veranda Magazine and American Artist. He has received awards from the Pollock Krasner Foundation, the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. For more information, please visit www.chrisgallego.com.

I will be assisting Chris during this workshop. Please be sure to mention that you heard about the workshop from me when you register.

Number of participants limited to 15.  Sign up today!

Workshop Fee: $250 through 9/20/09; $275 after 9/20/09

Central Park Paint-Out

Thanks to Passport & Palette (an art education series on PBS) and many forwarded emails and phone calls, some 50 plein air painters showed up at the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park today, including me.  We served as sort of a performance for the 1000s of Park visitors who were either bewildered by the presence of all the artists ("is this a class?") or took on inspecting each artist's work as a cultural obligation (albeit an enjoyable one). Luckily it turned out to be a beautiful day to spend in the Park. Here are my two paintings: Morning at Bethesda Terrace, Central Park

I'm going to add some figures into this scene to make it more realistic!

In the afternoon I worked on this view from a western path away from the Terrace:
