Saturday, September 8th at Buffalo Peaks Ranch
What a summer it has been! We are excited to have artist Meredith Nemirov at Buffalo Peaks Ranch on September 8th, for our last artist workshop of the season.
Early instructors in the art of watercolor painting used to urge students to paint at least one sky every day of the year. If you did two or three a week, you would have the experience of doing over a hundred in a year, and you would then be able to look at the sky and see it in terms of the medium.
Let’s look up together and make a series of paintings that reflect our day at Buffalo Peaks Ranch. We will work in all the traditional watercolor techniques: wet-into-wet, dry brush, mark-making, and more as we capture the beauty of land and sky.
Meredith Nemirov’s work has been featured in several galleries across Colorado, in addition to galleries in New York and Massachusetts. Meredith was recently the focus of an Artist Profile in Plein Air Magazine.
Saturday, September 8th, 10am to 3:30pm, $50 class fee, plus $3.03 ticketing fee
“…the more Nemirov explains her process, the more one realizes that there is a complicated dance going on between abstraction and representation and between plein air and studio paintings in her work. Her studio paintings are usually abstractions of what she sees on location. Yet she never works from photos, but rather from drawings and paintings done in the field. ‘I can’t let go of the plein air landscape because I love it so much and because it feeds the abstract work,’ says Nemirov. ‘Outside you have to be so present, every moment, with every brushstroke. It’s a very different and intense experience.’” — Bob Bahr, PleinAir Magazine, April-May 2016
