Jeanette LeGrue - Artist
Jeanette Le Grue was born in Alaska and now lives in Marin County California. She offers plein air workshops that emphasize seeing the abstract design in the landscape, the relationship of greys to color, and color harmony. The workshops are open to all skill levels.
"As a child, I did not speak until age three, expressing myself instead through coloring. I was fortunate to have a great art teacher – Mr. Neil Epps, from junior high all the way through high school. Although I consider myself mostly self-taught, I have attended numerous college art classes and artists workshops." She credits plein air masters Sergei Bongart, Joaquin Sorolla and Franz Bischoff with influencing her use of color, light and subtle greys.
