Quick Landscape Painting with Flashe Paint
Saturday, October 22, 2022
Join artist Jamie Ribisi-Braley as she leads you through a one-day plein air (open air) landscape painting workshop in the paint medium called Flashe. Flashe paint is a vinyl acrylic paint and is the perfect medium for quick spontaneous painting, as it dries incredibly fast, layers easily, thins like a dream, and has a wonderful matte finish. It handles like acrylic, gouache, and watercolor combined. A great paint that was developed in the 1950’s by Lefranc Bourgeois.
Explore flashe’s vibrant color and versatile application and layering methods as you portray the beauty and peace here at Sabbathday Lake. Inspiration abounds!
We will start in our sketch books, playing with samples of the paint. We’ll then move on to a small panel and complete a quick painting. Emphasis will be on being comfortable working in flashe and freeing yourself up. We’ll work on multiple small pieces. Grab a friend and join us!
All paint and painting surfaces will be supplied. Participants can please bring:
-An assortment of your favorite brushes (acrylic/watercolor #1-4 rounds/filberts/flats are perfect for this project)
-Optional: An outdoor easel, a small table-top easel, or a blanket to sit and work on the ground
All levels of experience are welcome. Perfect for beginners and professional alike. Seriously— you can learn to paint and you will have a great time!
Jamie has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Boston University and works full-time as Office Manager right here at Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, which is a constant inspiration and subject of her art. She thoroughly enjoys putting together the workshop series at Shaker Village and meeting all the creative people that surround this place.
*We will work outdoors, so please layer appropriately. In the event of inclement weather, we will work indoors from photographs.
Max: 10 participants
