Join us for a demonstration of painting en plein air by Richard Oversmith at Wild Cat Ridge Peony Farm in Clyde NC near Waynesville..
The natural beauty of Western North Carolina has proven to offer infinite inspiration for Richard’s impressionistic landscapes. From rolling mountains to abundant waterfalls, the majestic Biltmore Estate to a simple farm scene, this region evokes the artist’s muse. Richard finds inspiration not only at home but in his many travels. He has painted all over the USA and has taken several trips overseas to France and Italy. Whether at home or abroad, Richard surrounds himself in the elements of the scene while painting, in true “en plein air” fashion. In the studio, his sense of vision and mood guide him to produce still life’s ranging from the classic to the imaginative.
The Wild Cat Ridge Peony Farm is an exciting location for us to witness Richard's painting technique and also to set up and paint in our own way. The farm will be near peak bloom so the peonies will provide color and charm. The farm also sits along Panther Creek, which offers gorgeous mountain river views.
The demonstration and paint out are free and open to all. Donations are appreciated to support the work of AULP.
Following the demo and paint out, there is also a lunch option at a cost of $25.40 . Please contact me if you are interested in enjoying delicious food and social time after our morning of art.
