Workshops

 

Todd teaches one to multi-day workshops to groups of various sizes. Subjects vary from technique to expanding your creativity. He also provides individual instruction and mentoring. Contact Todd if you or a group are interested in having a workshop in your area.

Todd is an avid plein air painter and has studied under various masters in the medium. His travels have
taken him to diverse and exciting locations around the world. Along the way, Todd has learned to
overcome the many challenges that come with the various conditions of traveling and painting
outdoors. Born and raised in NYC, cityscapes have become one of Todd’s favorite subjects to paint.
Since moving to Nashville a few years ago, Todd has gained a great appreciation for painting the beauty of the landscape as well.

Watercolor: Plein Air Sketchbook to the Studio

Learn how to capture the feeling of the outdoors in the studio. Use a combination of plein air sketches and on-location photgraphs to develop and edit what you see into more pleasing compositions in the studio using minimal tools in the field. Working with a sketchbook and a watercolor travel palette, this overlooked process of recording ideas in your sketchbook vs only using photos will translate into a far deeper recall of the subject to create more inspiring art.
