I'm a full-time oil painter living in the North Bay. Can be painting vineyards in Napa within 30 minutes of leaving my home or paint within walking distance of where I live on Mare Island. Impressionist Plein Air painting is my passion.
My previous website served me well for many years. However, it was time for an update so I updated my website at www.jensenstudio.com. I hope you like the new look. It has a news tab but I decided this blog has served me well in the past so will continue blog posts here.
I am teaching a three-day plein air workshop in the Napa, California area from September 15-17, 2011. Learn more about this $275 workshop by downloading the two page pdf brochure under the Upcoming Events tab of my website.
Comments from past workshop attendees include:
"Brent is a natural born teacher with the ability to impart knowledge and encouragement. He takes people from where they are in their development and advances them to the next level."
"Brent's encouragement and enthusiasm to interpret subject matter is a tremendous boost to the process."
"I received personal attention geared at my level - edge work and color enhancement."
"The variety of locations in this workshop was terrific."
I first met C.W. Mundy when I attended his workshop in the Loire Valley of France in 2005. He was an exceptional instructor and created what remains a highlight of my life. C.W. was generous with his time and knowledge. I felt validated as a relatively new artist. Since that initial workshop, I have kept in contact with C.W. Through the subsequent years, he has been a true mentor. I found out this week that Southwest Art magazine is going to feature an article on C.W. in their July issue. A few of his students he has mentored will be interviewed and become part of the article. I am honored to have my interview tomorrow.
