I will be helping you create your own wildlife/landscape painting in beautiful Sanibel Island, FL! Starting with the basics, we will work through developing ideas and how to lay out the composition of your painting. Then you will learn various painting techniques from developing the background to painting the smallest details. There will be a small mini show on the last day and you will have a nice painting to take home.
I will be there doing demos and assisting students. Class will practice techniques and lessons, then apply those lessons to a painting they work on throughout the course.
