“Our three day Don Sahli workshop is the Invitational’s big commitment offering. Don is a really special teacher. On the one hand he is among the most prolific and masterful plein air painters in American history, and has decades of painting in front of him. On the other hand he is the most committed mentor I know of. Don was a child prodigy painter, and was the last apprentice of the seminal California painter Sergei Bongart. As such he has a concept of, and commitment to, mentorship that is old school and extremely valuable to his students. While Don’s workshop is fairly intense, his vast experience as a teacher assures that any level of student can participate and have success. This is the workshop for those looking for a big step forward.”
As the foundations of plein air painting are presented step-by-step, you will learn how to simplify complex landscapes into “simple pieces” dealing with color, value, and temperature. Painting on location, taking the studio outside brings its own set of challenges. In the outdoors, things change quickly; the natural world is in constant motion. Working outdoors will train you to work with haste and to be more spontaneous in your painting!
