"Essentials of Landscape Painting in Oils"


 Bill Fletcher

Bill Fletcher teaches you how to apply the essentials of successful oil painting to Southern coastal scenes in an expressive American Impressionist style at Tybee Island, GA!

 This is a tremendous opportunity to learn from Bill as he shares his in depth, knowledge and passion for painting in this exciting workshop. You will not want to miss it.

January 26-28, 2016

Tybee Island, GA

9:30 am to 4 pm daily


"Come paint with me and enjoy the historic Southern charm of Tybee Island during this 3 day studio oil painting workshop in January 2016!" 

 In this indoor studio painting workshop I'll emphasize my simple three step approach to painting, covering topics essential to successful landscape painting such as design, simplification, values, color mixing, creating depth, and creating a sense of light and atmosphere. I'm also excited to be introducing something new to my workshops this year... "landscape element focus sessions". I'll include one on "Painting Trees" and another on "Painting Clouds". These focus sessions include presentation as well as learning by doing and are created to really help you paint these common landscape elements beautifully. 

Each day will include a presentation, demo, focus session, group feedback session, and lots of time for you to paint with individual attention from me. I'll keep it fun while we are getting a lot done! 

 Really Great Lodging Deals with Mermaid Cottages!

Pamper yourself while there in one of Tybee's aptly named historical Mermaid Cottages, a collection of vintage cottages, historic homes and beach bungalows located all over the island. You'll find no shortage of inspiration from the moment you arrive. Mermaid Cottages is delighted to offer some great special rates for this event.
