NEW Workshop for 2022

Friday Evening:
Learn how to take better photos for painting as well as how to choose and edit the
photos you already have. What works for painting and which photos don’t make the cut.
Bring a stack of pictures you have wanted to try to paint and Let’s work some magic into
your photos.

Saturday: Fast and Furious Painting.
We will be painting 6 paintings in one day. Learn to take the fear out of painting by
jumping right in and make fast, bold and brave decisions.

Photos will be displayed on a screen and you will have 20 minutes to paint what is before you. Amazingly enough, you will be shocked at how good you can paint when you don’t have time to think. Just start swinging your brush and have fun. Subjects will range from landscapes to animals, figures maybe even a flower or two. Lots of hands-on instruction will be included.
