I'll be conducting two 2-day Plein Air Painting Workshops in San Diego this summer:
July 15-16 at Sunset Cliffs (Point Loma) in San Diego
and August 5-6 in North County/Carlsbad.
We'll cover the essentials, strong composition, mixing color, seeing values, and understanding edges. If you've taken my studio class, this is a logical next step to gaining confidence painting outdoors. A gentle (yet positive) critique each day is a useful way to learn from each other's successes and weaknesses. Both oil and acrylic painters are welcome, previous painting experience is recommended.
You'll need a basic plein air set-up: easel, paint box/pochade, paint, brushes and solvent container. Additional equipment list (hat, water, sunscreen etc) will be forwarded after registration. Saturday and Sunday, 9am-3pm with a short break for lunch (provided).
Class is limited to eight students, (first come basis) 50% deposit will reserve your spot, Class fee: $250 Cash or personal check only.
Call 619-224-2654 if you have questions...
"A note to let you know that I've just loved your class. I've appreciated your work for a really long time- and it's been my good fortune to learn how you think and go about your paintings. I've learned so much - I was super intimidated to start - not having painted in 25 years. It was fun and informative to watch others grow as well. Thank you so very much for sharing what you know -- and especially the limited pallette. I was an art teacher for many years....so I have a appreciation for a really good one." -D. Carnick, San Diego

"I grew up in Southern California in the 60s, and all I wanted to do was surf with my friends and do anything involved with art. Since then, painting, teaching and being near the ocean with my family, is how I spend my time. I am constantly working to be a better painter, teacher and father."
During the last decade, Yeomans has worked to build a reputation and following as a respected regional artist. His work has received numerous awards, and benn exhibited at the Irvine Museum as well as other noted California art institutions. Among his awards is “Best Urban Landscape” at the California Art Club’s 97th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition (2008) and a commission for the Naval Hospital in San Diego giving recognition to the Wounded Warriors of our military.
He is an Artist Member of the California Art Club, a Signature Member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, and he teaches painting at the La Jolla Athenaeum Art & Music Library.
