April 2010 MAG Meeting

Matthews Artists Guild April meeting with our featured artist Scott Boyle. Scott talked about Plein Air painting and demonstrated how a field study, sketches, and proper planning can be used to create a larger studio painting. Everyone in attendance enjoyed the painting presentation and his shared knowledge of his craft! Scott will be conducting an upcoming workshop which you can learn more about the details by visiting his site, and he also holds regular (monthly) paint-outs that everyone is welcome to participate at.
