It’s quick and easy to create postcard-size paintings, whether you’re gazing at a lovely vista or referencing travel photos. Virtually spend the afternoon in Provence discovering how to capture a scene with flowing lines and colors. Learn to quickly capture light, shadow, and details that add life to your subject. From inviting doorways and windows to fields of lavender, share the “journey” using the instructor's photos from her "Life in Provence" series, or your own photographs if you prefer. The instructor also demonstrates how to enhance your artwork with calligraphy. All levels welcome.
