All levels. A good class for beginners and experienced painters alike.


In this workshop we will explore expressive approaches to painting skies, clouds, land and seascapes by creating paintings with atmosphere and energy without focusing on too much detail. Learning expressive watercolor allows for loose paintings that convey your unique vision as a painter, and helps you develop the freedom and spontaneity to produce atmospheric, vibrant paintings. Through instructor demonstrations, practice and individual instruction students will learn how to move beyond the photo reference, understand the pigment to water ratio as you progress through your painting, and how this relates to the tonal values in your composition.

Artist Bio for Lisa Miceli:


Lisa is a plein air painter and art teacher who focuses on expressionist watercolors and oils.
She teaches both in the studio and at plein air locations year round. Lisa has studied with several prominent artists, but a significant influence on her painting has come from her artistic grandmother, Lucille. She has won awards such as the prestigious Ruth Wynn Memorial Award from the Rhode Island Watercolor Society. She has been in exhibits and juried shows with the Lyme Art Association, Providence Art Club, Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts and too many more to list. Lisa has taught art course across the spectrum - Plein air Palette Knife Painting, Colorist Landscape; and Stick and Ink – just to name a few. In her plein air painting Lisa seeks to convey something deeper about the land, sea and sky than meets the eye, something that is under the surface but visible only when we slow down to look, uncovering what is beautiful in the seemingly ordinary.
