This workshop is an outdoor watercolor painting combined with painting indoor. The participants will spend their majority of time outdoor, taking advantage of incredible outdoor setting at Playa. In Addition, for a few hours each day, we will work indoor to do expressive paintings using imaginative colors based on the outdoor experience. In addition, there will be digital presentations, group critiques and sharing of the original paintings done by the instructor. The compositional issues such as value, color and etc. will be discussed.

I was born and grew up in Kyoto, Japan. In my twenties, I came to Eugene, Oregon to study Art History at the University of Oregon. Then I completed the MFA Program in painting at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. While I was a graduate student majoring in oil painting, I discovered the watercolor medium as a major artistic expression. Currently, I continue my artistic pursuit in several different media such as watercolor and Sumi ink. These aqueous mediums keep my deep artistic and emotional ties to Japan. I have taught art at the Lane Community College for 30 years until I retired in 2016. At the University of Oregon, I initiated an Italian pléin-air painting program in Italy in 1996 and was the director of the program between 1998 and 2005. I was then invited to teach outdoor paining in the Kyoto Study Abroad program offered by the Landscape Department at the University of Oregon from 2006 to 2016. I love pléin-air painting, because I enjoy being outdoors, especially in nature, experiencing the environment with all of my senses. No matter how the results turn out, I appreciate the process of painting from which I deepen my perception of what I observe.
