Watercolors in Plein Air (Buildings and Landscapes) – Demonstration Paintings

Categories: Events,Workshops

I had a great time teaching Plein Air Painting, at Touchstone Center of the Arts last week.   Rain every day…but everybody had a great time. What a great talented bunch of students. Below you’ll find some of my demostrations.

Thank you, Touchstone Center for the Arts for taking good care of us.  And I am looking forward to coming back in September and doing some urban paintings.  (Rain or Shine)!


Paint with me at Touchstone Center for the Crafts in Farmington, PA.

Grab your sketchbook and paint and join award-winning watercolorist Dorrie Rifkin in exploring Pennsylvania through the artist’s eye. Students will paint outdoors, weather permitting, or from photos on rainy days.

If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at watercolors, but didn’t know where to begin, this is the workshop for you. If you’re not a beginner, join us to strengthen your design skills and take your paintings to the next level. This workshop will cover equally the steps of designing, drawing, and painting. Participants will learn to create strong compositions, execute a solid underlying sketch, draw typography, and paint effectively.

Expect to learn while having fun through demonstration, exercises,
and individual instruction and encouragement.
