PAINT ANYTHING WITH CONFIDENCE – with Nancy Tankersley
September 6, 2019 - September 16, 2019$3250
A typical day will begin with a lesson and sometimes a demo after breakfast, either in the studio or on location. I hope to have an even balance between studio time and outdoor painting, but I also like to be flexible depending upon the weather and interests of the group. I also like to allow for unsupervised studio time with after dinner critique sessions. Certain days we will travel to surrounding towns where we will take in the culture, sketch, do small plein air paintings or just take photos.Above all I hope you leave with the confidence to paint anything you desire to paint, and a suitcase full of wonderful La Romita memories
Nancy Tankersley began her career as a portraitist but entered the gallery scene with figurative paintings of people at work and at leisure. Currently as she searches for the unpredictable, Tankersley moves between landscape, figures and still life. Incorporating non- traditional tools , supports and technologies for her paintings she remains faithful to her impressionistic style.
Active in the current plein air movement, and a founder of Plein Air Easton, she travels worldwide participating in competitions, judging and teaching. In 2018 she was invited to be an instructor and demonstrator at the Plein Air Convention in Santa Fe and released her first instructional video with Lilliedahl Videos. In 2016 and 2017 she was invited to exhibit at the prestigious Masters Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club in NYC. Recent honors include Best of Show at Parrsboro, Nova Scotia International Plein Air 2018, Best of Show at the Lighthouse Plein Air Festival 2017 and the Dickinson Award for Best Painting by a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society 2016 Annual Juried Exhibit.
She is a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society, the American Society for Marine Art, and the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters and also holds memberships in the Washington Society for Landscape Painters and the Salmagundi Club. Founder and Director of the Easton Studio, a workshops facility begun in Easton in 2010, the artist mentors and teaches workshops and also sponsors workshops by nationally known painters.
