Learn how to paint outdoor portraits in oils, for beginners to advanced. Add more impact to your color statements and improve structural drawing skills related to the figure, portrait, drapery, and the landscape.  Weather permitting, class will take place along the scenic West River in the rustic seaside village of Galesville.  If it rains, artists will paint inside Rick's north light studio a few blocks away.  All skill levels welcome, bottled water provided.  Model fee $50, two models each class.
