Watercolor Painting
August 1-3, 2017 — Paint the summer colors at this beautiful and historic location overlooking the beautiful Connecticut River Valley while relaxing in the comfort of the Gibson House Inn. This workshop will focus on plein air landscape painting with some classroom instruction and will be open to all abilities. Born 1954, in Rochester, NY, Robert O'Brien has been painting in the watercolor medium for thirty years. Since moving to Vermont in 1977, he has focused his work on landscape and architectural studies. The artist finds beauty in the ordinary, subtle reminders of everyday life in rural New England. In his own words, he is driven "to capture the vanishing landscape in my paintings" before they disappear forever as a result of the steady hand of "progress." Visit website
