Damon will begin each session with setup and demo of my painting technique. Depending upon the day and the weather, it will either be the start of a painting or the continuation of a painting on the second day.  Following the demo, everyone will set up where they like within a walkable area, and Damon will move from person to person to help individually.

Bring oil or acrylic paints, travel easel, brushes and palette knives, palette, mediums and brush cleaner, paper towels, and of course primed paper, panels, or canvases to paint on.   Damon recommends painting sizes between about 10 x 12 inches and 12 x 18 inches-  just big enough to work with but small enough to complete in two days.   PLEASE BRING SUNSCREEN AND LARGE HAT, AND BUG REPELLANT.

We will meet at Wright Locke Farm, 78 Ridge St, Winchester, MA 01890.   Parking is available in two locations at the farm, and across the street at the sports fields lot.  There are nice restrooms and drinking fountains in the main house, and a farm stand is open Saturday mornings for refreshments.
