She will demo in oils, but this retreat is open to those who work in oils as well as acrylics. Chris has over 28 years of experience in both media.In addition, she will show you how to create beautiful watercolor journals to keep as momentums from the trip. This experience is open for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced!
In this small group setting there will be descriptive and detailed step by step demonstrations along with one on one easel time and exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings. We will discuss color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more.
