Scott Lloyd Anderson

by Sarah Judson February 18, 2013

Minnesota plein air painter Scott Lloyd Anderson will be offering a Winter Plein Air Workshop next month, March 8-10 in Minneapolis. He will cover tactics for taking the pain out of cold-weather painting and tips for increasing your speed as well as achieving a sense of light and arranging compelling compositions. "In 2001, after 22 years as a magazine designer, I left my computer to go outside and paint. As workplaces go, nature is tough to beat. It never fails to deliver inspiration and challenges to an artist: views to paint wherever you look, constantly changing color, light, and atmosphere. Cold and wind. Bugs. Despite the frostbite and horseflies, I haven't once wanted to go back to a desk job." There is a link to a video that shows him painting outdoors and explaining his process. "The advantage of painting outside is that you don't have any time. The movement of the sun & the atmosphere changing & the elements changing so quickly is a good thing, because it brings a vibrancy to your brushwork that's honest." He spent some time painting the re-building of the I-35 bridge which collapsed in 2007, and his site includes a testimonial from the current Mayor of Minneapolis.
