One Painting a Day April 27 2015

I have been teaching the One Painting in One Day workshop for over 7 years (I think, may be more). " Spring White Flowers in Mexico" Original painting, Acrylic on canvas board 14" x 11" Price $90 including shipping to US via Mex Post  Detail I enjoy the quick painting process that does not make one feel that they have invested lots of time and materials in a painting. For me every painting is about the moment, the feeling of the day, or of the memory the subject takes me to. Consistency it's one of my challenges. Even Though I paint and teach full time it's so much to do that sometimes it's hard to stay committed to one project. I have so MANY ideas for paintings and new subjects and approaches! In any case I will attempt to add one painting every day! If you are reading this post PLEASE subscribe to receive updates by Email. All the paintings are for sell starting at $75 USD (or more) plus shipping. Or otherwise specified Contact

Two weeks intro to sketching and watercolor plein air

Image
We love to receive our participants’ suggestions, and add new programs to our existing classes and workshops. As some of you have mentions, one week of sketching and painting is not enough, since San Miguel de Allende has so much to offer. And one month may be a long time for some. So we created a new 2 workshop. This is ideal for beginner to intermediate artists who want to build the habit of urban sketching and plein air watercolor painting. During the first week we'll focus on understanding the principles of sketching, then practicing it around town. We noticed that are many interested in sketching but all the sketch crawls are for individuals who already know how.   So we created an introductory program to take the fear out of sketching. Second week is focused on introduction to watercolor plein air. You will introduce you to the basics of watercolor, and then the rest of the week we'll paint out and about the studio. The cost is $750 USD for the t
