Learn to use shape, perspective, color, and brushwork in plein air to design captivating artwork.  A big focus will be on quick studies and simplifying a scene inorder to capture the beautiful neighborhood and town around you.  By focusing on design, painters will find they can create wonderful plein air studies that can stand on their own or be used to develop larger works of art.  Since design is the focus, feel free to work in your choice of medium.  I often paint en plein air with oil and watercolor/gouache but feel free to use acrylic, pastel or a drawing medium.

Scott Roebuck

grew up in Chicago, and was first introduced to art by his grandfather who was an avid painter and cartoonist. Initially tennis was Scott’s passion and he spent much of his childhood on the tennis court. He continued playing tennis through college but he also became more serious about art and began to draw.

His first career was as a tennis pro but in his spare time he focused on his art working in watercolor, acrylic, then oil paint. Scott then trained to be a science teacher but always made time to work on his art.

The next few years Scott moved around from Chicago to Phoenix and then to the UK. This exposed him to different artists and techniques, pushing him to continually improve his own work.

​Now back in the US, in Colorado, he is enjoying the new landscapes that are inspiring him more than ever to experiment and hone his art skills.

Zen Line Drawing is all about drawing lines to create beautiful patterns that can be combined to produce a piece of art on paper, wood, glass, cards, and so much more. In this workshop, you will learn how to deconstruct and draw designs, combine various designs into a pleasing composition, and learn how to get started on multiple substrates.   No art experience is necessary, and supplies are few.
