Painting the Italian Landscapes – with Nancy Tankersley
August 22, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$300
2-Part Workshop: Saturday August 22 and 29, 1 PM Eastern
There are only 10 slots available for this workshop!
“I’ve filmed 2 hour-long videos of me painting an Italian landscape. After you register and pay, you’ll receive the link to the first video. You’ll have at least 5 days to view it and start your own studio painting.
On August 22, at 1 PM EST we will have a Zoom session to review your paintings. At that point you will have designed it and blocked in the values and basic colors. Then you will be sent the link to the second hour long video.
On August 29, again at 1 PM EST we will meet again via Zoom and again I will do a group critique and give you suggestions for finishing the painting.
At any time, from the time you start the landscape until you finish, you can email or text me with questions and I’ll respond as soon as possible. (unless it takes you five years to finish, I have to draw the line somewhere!)
Then we’ll post all of your finished paintings on our Facebook pages! Maybe we can have a virtual opening?”
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.
