students use field studies, photographs and sketches to develop landscape paintings
Durango, CO (PRWEB) March 11, 2015
Sorrel Sky Gallery will host a 3 day workshop with artist Peggy Immel in which students will use field studies, photographs and sketches to develop studio landscape paintings in Elements in Landscape Painting in Durango, Colorado on Friday through Sunday, March 27-29.
A second generation Arizonan born in Phoenix, Peggy Immel spent her youth traveling the world as the daughter of a career Air Force veteran. She took her first oil painting class in Salina, Kansas at ten. In college she studied architecture at Arizona State University and after her marriage, she took art classes at three major New England art schools along with workshops with admired artists. While living in Boston she became a rock and ice climber, a turning point where nature and adventure became her muse. Moving to Taos with her husband brought her back to her western roots where her landscapes are inspired by her love of the outdoors and the Southwest’s exotic beauty.
Sorrel Sky Gallery's 3rd Annual Artists Workshop Series is scheduled over weekends to encourage artists to come and stay to the location and enjoy the experience of learning with a master and getting to know the arts community in both Durango and Santa Fe. For more information and to register for a workshop call (970) 247-3555. A complete listing of workshops is available at http://www.sorrelsky.com.
