Assateague Island Seashore Artist in Residence

I am thrilled to announce that I will be at Assateague Island National Seashore October 26th-November 8th, for an Artist in Residence.  On November 7th, I will give a one day workshop, "Introduction to Painting Wild Horses from Life".  The cost of the workshop is $125.00, it is sponsored by and will benefit the Assateague Island Alliance. 
Introduction to Painting Wild Horses from Life
with Karen McLain
November 7th, 2015

Artists have long painted outdoors, working in natural light to see and to be inspired by nature while immersed in its element. This workshop will cover techniques for painting the horse quickly and fluidly from life. We will discuss the challenges of painting a moving subject in changing light and coping with the problems inherent in painting outdoors. A demonstration will be given on painting the horse with emphasis on accurate anatomy. I will guide the students through the process of observing, painting and learning from wild horses to enrich studio work.
Join us for a very rewarding experience as you take advantage of the beauty that surrounds us and capture it on canvas!
Portable equipment is required – students will be working outdoors with a wild horse in their natural setting.

Registration information will be released soon. For more information or to be added to the distribution list please contact us at 443-614-3547, or keep watching for updates on Facebook and
