Plein Air Painting w/ Catherine Hillis: Painting Water & Marshes

  • Glynn Visual Arts 106 Island Drive Saint Simons Island United States (map)

Learn how to paint the marshes and water surrounding the beautiful Golden Isles. The instructor will discuss various set ups on site and equipment. Learn how to simplify the beauty of nature into shapes and portray light. The focus will be on painting skies, water and reflections and developing atmosphere in a painting.

Catherine Hillis has earned 8 signature memberships from watercolor societies across the country and travels extensively for national plein air competitions. Her work was featured in the February 2019 issue of Plein Air Magazine. Information about her national plein air travels and awards are at

Meet at Glynn Visual Arts at 9:00 am for directions to our painting location. In case of rain, the class will take place at GVA and students will need to bring large photographs of water and marshes they want to paint. Demonstrations and individual coaching are a part of every workshop.
