Workshop - Painting - “Moods of the County” Plein Air Abstraction with Pamela Mayhew
Slow down and settle into a truly unique art experience on our alpaca farm in the heart of Prince Edward County.
Moods of the County / Plein Air Abstraction
Saturday October 7/23 10am-3pm with Pamela Mayhew
Loosen up and absorb the shapes and “Moods of the County” landscape with Pamela Mayhew, award winning Canadian artist and professional arts instructor.
In this Plein Air Abstraction workshop we will be spending our day in the landscape at Chetwyn Farms. Pamela will help you to see shape, form, colour and light within the landscape. Wearing a lens of compositional observation she will then guide you in abstracting the landscapes that lays before you.
Your three "oil sketches" may be finished or perhaps a study for larger pieces. Either way you will enjoy spending time in the landscape; simplifying, observing and learning the method of abstraction.
Session ends with sharing feedback and open discussion in the Studio Loft on the farm.

Pamela Mayhew is an abstract landscape painter with studios in both Prince Edward County and Newfoundland.

In this abstraction and mode of observation she creates a sense of place and moment.
