Using Movement in your Paintings

Spring Blossoms at the Grand View Ranch, by Stefan Baumann

By Stefan Baumann “Spring Blossoms at The Grand View Ranch” Before we start I want to Announce!

I have been invited to be a field instructor on location at The Plein Air convention in Monterey, California on April 10-14, 2013. Is that a big deal? YES!

Now PleinAir Magazine is sponsoring a second conference based on the success of last year’s conference in Las Vegas.

 

If you are just beginning to paint on location or have been doing it for years, this is the place to be and be seen. I will be there in person and I
