ROCK ISLAND PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP!

I am pleased to announce I will be teaching a two day plein air workshop on Rock Island, Wisconsin.  July 6th & 7th

"Join us as we learn the basics in painting outdoors using oils with Doug Clarke.  In a two day workshop, Doug shares his knowledge on how to observe the outdoors and give feeling and life to complete your paintings.  Set within the rustic landscape of Rock Island State Park off the tip of Washington Island, students will have the opportunity to capture unique lake views and historic structures.
Doug Clarke is an award winning Plein Air and Studio painter based out of Virginia Beach. He works in oils creating plein air and studio paintings. A painter of "en plein air", Doug is known for capturing the vanishing landscapes of Southeastern Virginia.
Graduating Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Commonwealth University, Doug's work has evolved from commercial to fine art. In pursuit of mastering his craft, Doug participates in local and national plein air events. 
Awards include 1st place at Plein Air 757, Williamsburg Plein Air and Plein Air Mount Lebanon competitions.
