Fast & Furious Painting: Myakkalike Landscapes
03. 02. 20
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Many of my paintings are done from what I see in my own neighborhood within walking distance to a canal, park, golf course, pond and even my own back yard. My reference photos and paintings will be from these environs but students are also welcome to bring their own. It's more about how you paint than what you paint. I choose poetry and creativity over correctness and am willing to change course as my painting progresses. We'll focus on using a loose, colorful and expressive painting technique. Skill and confidence will follow while putting pizazz into your paintings. This will be a fun, easy going, workshop where you can't have too much fun. Each student will get ample personal guidance.

Watercolor & Pastel: Impressionistic Flowers
03. 03. 20
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
A colorful and intuitive painting approach for beginners. Following a loose abstract pattern, we will create this painting by throwing and spraying paint to let the watercolor "paint itself". The flowers will literally surface, after which when the paper is dry we will draw some suggestible flower shapes in pastels. Though we will do step by step, every painting will be different, as this approach allows for the subject to merge from random unique abstracts. No experience necessary. Perfect for the experienced painter who wants to loosen up and explore combining the mediums.
