Experience oil painting in the mid-afternoon and early evening light, take note of the lights' effect on your work. Join Jan for this two day plein air class, she has planned a couple longer demos that will provide the opportunity to watch both the preliminary stages and her further development of the paintings. Share in the discussions of subject matter, composition, light, hard and soft edges, editing, and color.  Anticipate working on at least 2 smallish (5x7", 6x8", 8x10", 9x12") paintings per day - as we will be in afternoon/evening light and the lighting can change substantially, unless it is completely overcast.

Jan Norsetter is an award-winning oil painter known for vibrant landscape paintings en plein air and evocatively detailed studies in still life. Norsetter also practices the decorative art of rosemaling, using skill and an artist’s sensibility to embellish items traditional and modern in an age-old form.

Norsetter paints en plein air (painting in the open air) to imbue her paintings with a sense of place. She works outdoors in every season, painting close to home in Wisconsin and on travels to the western United States and overseas to Italy, Ireland, Scotland and Norway.

The artist has exhibited in more than 30 juried, collaborative or solo art shows. Selected paintings, prints and her rosemaling are in many permanent and private collections across the country. Awards include top honors in numerous plein air competitions and rosemaling exhibitions. In addition to her work as an artist, Norsetter teaches landscape painting and rosemaling. She continues to draw inspiration from respected mentors in oil painting and rosemaling.

Three Wisconsin-based galleries represent Norsetter’s work: Zazen Gallery in Paoli, Pink Llama Gallery in Cedarburg, and Diakonos Gallery in Stoughton.
