Open marshland, dunes, the Merrimac river and fields of black cows. Come paint the beautiful landscape of the North Shore. Emphasis is on direct observation, composition and the crucial idea that a painting is a series of abstract relationships. We will paint floral still life inside at the Byfield Community Arts Center if weather is inclement. First class meets at Byfield Community Arts Center for a short slide show before heading out. Handouts provided. Subsequent classes will meet at the painting location and I will email you the night before with directions.

About the Instructor
Sue Charles, BFA Painting, Boston University College of Fine Art. Sue has been painting for twenty years and has taught landscape painting classes since 2002. She emphasizes the acquisition of observation skills-perceiving a painting as a series of abstract hierarchal relationships, rejecting strict approaches to painting and trusting and encouraging each artist's original work methods and expression. Sue has won numerous awards for her paintings and her work is in many collections, most notably David and Susan Rockefeller, Jr.s. She is represented by Powers Gallery, Alpers Gallery, Islesford Artists Gallery and South Street Gallery. She works in studio 110 at 14 Cedar Street Studios in Amesbury, MA.
