Sheree will guide you through simple steps to making a good painting – from choosing your subject – to editing and designing a solid composition – to executing the actual work.

This workshop will also focus on:

  • Colour mixing with a palette of warm & cool colours
  • The importance of a thumbnail and value sketch
  • The importance of keeping your sense of humour in the field “en plein air”

There will be several demonstrations, fun exercises and plenty of one on one instruction.

Paint in your preferred medium (oils, water soluble oils or acrylics) and open yourself up to new and exciting possibilities.

This workshop is designed for beginners with some experience and all other levels of oil and acrylic painters.
