This is a rare opportunity to enhance your composition, value, masses, edges, drawing and color skills with renowned artist and teacher, Lorenzo Chavez. This is a three-day pastel workshop (oil painters can also join in) with one day in the studio and two plein air locations in the Santa Barbara area. Lorenzo advocates plein air as the best way to gain landscape painting skills and knowledge.
Lorenzo's suggestive renderings and fluent technique in both oil and pastel have earned him numerous awards and many devoted collectors throughout the United States, and he is considered by many to be the west’s premier pastel painter. He has taught numerous workshops across the United States, and his work is represented by many major fine art galleries and private and corporate collections both nationally and internationally. Lorenzo's first inspirations and foundation were formed by the local landscape and the art history in New Mexico, where he was born and raised. He now makes his home in Colorado and uses this location as a base to travel and paint the American West and Southwest.
Chavez is an active member of Northwest Rendezvous of Art, Plein Air Painters of America, California Art Club Signature Member, American Impressionist Society and the Pastel Society of Spain. He graduated with honors from the Colorado Institute of Art.
