Doug Dawson Workshop on the North Fork of Long Island NY

In 2011 , The Art Guild hosted renowned Pastellist/Oil Painter , PSA Hall of Fame awardee 2008, for a week of Workshops  

This video revisits the historic Elderfields property, and other plein air locations in the Port Washington area. 
 Doug introduces us to thumbnail sketches for plein air, and asked participants to select 3 pastels which were used  to create a painting using this limited palette, 

Colors are overlapped, pressure , and mark making variety  allow for creative possibilities heretofore unexplored by most artists. 

This approach offers great flexibility for playing with color and mass . Students paintings created on site  are shown in this video. 

A NEW Doug Dawson workshop series   for 2013  is  offered by The Art Guild
