Take up the perennial issues of plein air painting with PAPNM Master Bill Gallen in the enchanted surroundings of Taos, New Mexico. The workshop will be eight hours per day jam packed with provoking thoughts. We will investigate the question of, “What’s it About?” and look at color, temperature, value, rhythm and pattern while visiting some favorite locations in and around Taos. Demonstration and critique will be the method of our inquiry.
Bill Gallen currently resides in New Mexico where he enjoys painting landscapes, particularly location pieces. The eye for beauty and harmony in nature, which he developed as a child in the Midwest, informs his work with freshness and sensitivity. Bill studied at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, WI; the Scottsdale Artists School in AZ and the Fechin Institute Taos, NM. He counts Michael Lynch, David Ballew and Matt Smith as among his most influential teachers. He has had many exhibitions, including an homage to Maynard Dixon in 2019. His work is included in collections nationwide.
Class Size limited to 12: Price: $350
