Painting Sedona with Bill Cramer
A Two-Day Plein Air Workshop
November 9 – 10, 2022 | Wednesday & Thursday
Join Bill Cramer for this exciting workshop in Sedona!
This will be an enjoyable and intense 2-day workshop involving painting on-site in the Sedona landscape. We will learn the advantages of plein air painting, as well as the various approaches to working on-site and how to efficiently compose and complete plein air paintings. Emphasis will be placed on how to effectively translate the often complex three dimensional landscape onto a two dimensional plane using thumbnail sketches, limited palettes and the thoughtful use of colors, values, shapes, edges and textures.
Further emphasis will be placed on the creative process to make paintings that are more than strict representations of the landscape we see. Multiple demonstrations will be complemented by individual attention and group learning.
Bill Cramer is an influential painter and instructor. Bill has won many awards at plein air festivals including Artist’s Choice, Best of Show, Collector’s Choice, and the Sedona Image Award and Best of Show at the Sedona Plein Air Festival. He was our Keynote Speaker and Judge for the 2019 Sedona Plein Air Festival. Bill has also taught numerous workshops through the Sedona Arts Center and leads our popular Field Expedition “Painting at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.”
Bill Cramer will contact students about locations and times. This course usually starts early in the morning on the first day out on location.
Students of all abilities are welcome, however students should have a basic familiarity with the painting medium of their choice. Bill paints and demos in oil.
