Traveling to many European countries and Russia, being inspired by Master artist work, she felt compelled to develop her artistic ability further in order to convey all the beauty and essence of the places she visited. While living in Germany, she attended the “Malinstitut”, “Painting Institute” in Hamburg, Germany,  learning German Fine Art painting techniques where she worked in egg tempera. Eve’s landscape paintings are painted Plein Air (outdoors) and in the studio, returning to her former destinations through creating new paintings from her memories, photographs and sketches.

              May 1, 2021 (Saturday) ~ Randy Pitts (Oil – plein air)

              Creating Dynamic Landscapes Alla Prima

                   “We will explore how to paint a convincing landscape wet into wet using oils.  We will learn to accurately judge values, effectively use edges, and mix subtle colors in order to create the illusion of depth in a landscape. We will be looking to interpret the impression of the landscape and not merely dictating what’s in front of us.”
                     Randy will demo in the morning and give individual help at each student’s easel as they paint in the afternoon.
                     Randy is devoted to painting the landscape on location and the challenges of capturing the light, form and shape it provides.
                     The workshop will  be held at Beth Haizlip’s beautiful yard on Doctors Lake, Fleming Island.
