Landscape Painting with Justin T. Worrell - June 1 & 2, 2024 Lorton, VA


Come paint with me!  Each day I will be doing a live demonstration where I’ll take you through my materials, thought process, and dive into how I approach taking a painting to its resolution.  I will also share my journey in art; how I approach navigating the art world; things I’ve learned, my favorite scotch, etc.  In the afternoon we’ll have group painting time where you will take me through your artistic process and hopefully we can learn from each other.

Light breakfast (e.g., coffee, bagels) and lunch (e.g., local sandwiches) will be included in the price of the workshop for each day. 



Students are encouraged to bring whatever materials they use in their daily practice.  None of the below is required to participate in this workshop. However, as some students may be beginners, or would like to follow along with me more closely, here is a list of the materials I use.


If you are in the USA, many of these materials can be found online through Jerry’s Artarama or Blick Art Materials websites.

• I paint on smooth wood panels made by Ampersand (Museum Series Gessobord Panels) or Da Vinci (Pro Ultra Smooth Gesso Panels) of various sizes. During this workshop, I will be painting mainly on medium sized panels, likely 16” x 20” and 18” x 24”.  I recommend bringing at least 1 panel per day, but if you are a fast painter bring some extra.  I do tone my panels with an acrylic transparent red oxide.  If you wish to do this, I would advise toning the panels prior to the workshop.

• I prefer to work solvent-free and paint with water soluble oil colors from Holbein (Aqua Duo) and Cobra (made by Royal Talens).  My palette consists of the following colors: Titanium White (Cobra) - Cadmium Yellow (Holbein Aqua Duo) - Yellow Ochre (Holbein Aqua Duo) - Cadmium Orange (Cobra) - Cadmium Red (Holbein Aqua Duo) - Ultramarine Blue (Cobra) - Cerulean Blue (Cobra) - Permanent Green Light (Cobra) - Terre Verte Hue (Holbein Aqua Duo) - Phthalo Green (Cobra or Holbein) - Transparent Red Oxide (Cobra)

• Paintbrushes: Generally speaking, I use Monarch filbert brushes sizes 4-16. Students should try to have a variety of brush sizes and shapes, including a couple 2” to 3” oil brushes at hand.  Bring what works for you.

• If you use medium, please bring your own cup/jar (as well as the medium you use) for holding your medium or solvent.  I use Oil Painting Medium made by Holbein.

• Palette: Students will need to bring their own palettes.

• Palette Knife: I use a variety of small and medium palette knives in a variety of sizes (small/medium) and shapes (trowels and scrapers, mainly).

• The venue will have easels for everyone, but not much else.  If there’s something unique you use in your art, please bring it.


• Other Materials: - Purdy 144080310 XL Series Dale Angular Trim Paint Brush, 1 inch (dry technique brush) - Purdy 144080315 XL Series Dale Angular Trim Paint Brush, 1.5 inch (dry technique brush) - Palette scraper

Thank you and if you have any questions, please feel welcome to reach out to me directly!


I do offer private lessons in my home studio as my schedule allows.  If you are interested, please use the "Contact" page to write me with your interest.  My fees are $500 for a six hour lesson, but I have also taken on students for multiple days at a time.  I will work with you on selecting a day that works for both of us, which could include week days or weekends.  The lesson will generally include a 'discussion and demo' session where I take you through my process and materials, as well as allow time for you to paint with me at your side.  One of the benefits of scheduling a lesson with me is that you get to keep my demo painting!
