Q: I am traveling by air to this workshop, what are the airline guidelines for safely traveling with oil paints and solvents?
A: TSA regulations prohibit more than 3oz of liquid in your carry on luggage. Your best bet is to pack your paints in your suitcase. Liquin and Odorless Mineral Spirits are not allowed in the cargo area of airplanes. Here is an article from the Empty easel website with some great tips and suggestions for traveling with art supplies: (Click here).
Q: I have very little experience painting outdoors, is this workshop appropriate for me?
A: This workshop welcomes participants of all levels and is appropriate for beginners to experienced professionals. There is much to be learned and shared. Donald will discuss and demonstrate the visual language of paint and share ideas about seeing the landscape through the eyes of an artist. In the spirit of peer camaraderie, we will paint side-by-side in this exquisite landscape, sharing a mutual interest and deep affection for the world of art and nature. With the inclusion of Donald's experienced insight and examination of the landscape, we envision this adventure to be more of a rich cultural experience beyond a plein air workshop.
