Workshop Overview

Study the coastal sky and water with a scientist/artist and a painter. This unique class will bring you the science behind cloud formations, waves and water; how light, wind, seasons and the environment change both.

Finish 2 to 4 paintings in acrylic or watercolor based on our studies and observations. No experience in painting is necessary. Instructors will take students through the process of painting surf to sky.

About the Instructor(s)

Lynne Wintermute has a BFA from Linfield College and graduate studies at Pacific Northwest College of Arts and Universities in London and Dublin. She shows her work throughout the Northwest in invitational shows and galleries and teaches workshops in Oregon and Washington. Lynne paints acrylic expressionist landscapes as well as abstracts in oil and cold wax. Lynne works out of her studio in Pacific City, Oregon.

Collin Murphy, Ph.D., is a visual artist living in Portland, Oregon, who creates paintings depicting phenomena of nature.  A retired Research Cell Biologist at the University of California, she has exhibited frequently in Oregon and California, held an Artist’s Residency at Yosemite National Park, has been in 8 exhibits at the Yosemite Museum, with work in the museum’s permanent collection.  Her particular focus has been on the sculpting power of water on earth’s rocks and soil, and its manifestations as clouds, rain, rivers, waterfalls, and oceans. She explores reactions that occur as paint and color move over, around, into, and between surfaces of differing compositions and textures.  Collin teaches art in her studio and as a volunteer in both an elementary school and a homeless shelter.
