Workshop will concentrate on working quickly in an outdoor setting. Capturing the essence of the scene is most important as is composition, color, value, lost and found edges and brushwork to achieve an impressionistic painting. We will try and work on two paintings per day if time and conditions permit. This will promote working fast and not overworking. There will be a one hour break for lunch around noon each day. 

A complete supply list will be provided upon registration.

Capture the Magic of Mallorca! Plein air painting workshop in Spain

March 18 – 25, 2023

The island of Mallorca has always attracted painters, writers, poets, musicians and other artists. Some famous historical people who have chosen to make Mallorca their home include Frederic Chopin, Joan Miro, Robert Graves and of course current day tennis champion Rafael Nadal! 

The island offers everything from large city living in the capital Palma to quaint village life in small towns like Deia, Fornalutx and Valldemossa.

Our base will be in Valldemossa, one of the small, picturesque towns in the Tramuntana mountain range on the west coast of the island, in the middle of orange groves, olive trees, and open terraces.
