Karl’s work highlights the golden sunlight, the salty air, and the true feel of California landscapes. His plein air studies reveal truth and energy. If you have been waiting to take a workshop from this master painter, now is your chance. This 3-day workshop will be an outdoor plein air experience along Monterey Bay’s magnificent coastline. Possible coastal painting sites will be Point Lobos, Garrapata Beach, Carmel Coast, Garland Ranch Park, and Asilomar Beach.

Karl says “I prefer that the students work small on location, 9×12 or 8×10 or smaller forcing the student to decide on masses and shapes in a relatively confined area, and therefore reducing the amount of information they are able to include in a painting. The student can use any medium he or she prefers, they can use a minimalist pallet or a full complement of colors, the only requirement I have insisted on for years is that they bring a sketch pad and pencil where some of the student’s thinking is exposed and an early critique will assist them in their efforts.”
