Take Your Art To The Next Level 

Design may be the most important aspect of a successful painting. We’ll study design concepts as we play with portrait painting. Rene will introduce techniques for creating layers of complexity, interest and unity in your work using texture and patterning. Plan to work on several paintings during the workshop as you discover what resonates with you. You’ll have one finished painting plus several starts to work on later.

Includes demos by Rene plus one-on one work with each participant.  Any level of experience is welcome. Be prepared to play and experiment – that is how we learn, and where the joy is!

Bring normal watercolor painting supplies, several paintings that you’re not happy with and/or images that you’d like to include in your art, reference images, materials for collage. Complete Supply List with detailed suggestions on how to prepare for the workshop will be available.

Lodging and Lunches

If you’re coming from out of town, there are several lodging options. Write and I can send more info.

Lunches will be provided by the Maupin Market for $8 each. Opt out if you prefer and bring your own lunch.
