I always enjoy teaching my "Rocks, Sand & Sea Glass" or when I'm in the mountains I call it "From the Rivers Edge" workshop, (with a slight change in some of the subject). In my longer workshops on this subject we are beginning to paint rocks underwater along with other added things such as leaves etc.
I will be repeating this subject in Calistoga with a 3 day workshop in October there are only a few openings left. (landscape option has a wait list) If your interested visit this link

Just finished a workshop in Mendocino CA. I added a new composition of a water lily inspired by one of my students Marie Synder. It was fun to work on pinks & purples. Everyone learned so much. How to lift the petals away from the other and not have their painting look flat.
The paper always makes a difference in how it reacts to color and the flow of color in the water.
It is always magical when students step away from their paintings. It gives everyone a chance to get a new perspective. They are always surprised at how well they have done, even students that don't like their work, once they put it up it doesn't seem so bad and they have a chance to see how they are all working in the same direction. It is amazing how everyone can use the same composition and how different they come out.
In the workshops I find it is most often the best way to learn is to following along with me to learn the technique then apply it to their own paintings
Another successful workshop with wonderful students.
