Nature's Palette

Nature's Palette


   Fresh Greens, brilliant pinks, blues and lilac - beautiful colour of every shade and hue and  Spring finally arrives with Summer close behind. Creative juices stir and I find myself picking bouquets of flowers  that only last a day and must be painted before they droop. With mild sunny days I also drag everything outdoors only to be reminded once more of the joy's of  Plein air painting. There's nothing like it or the challenges and frustration as light and weather quickly change.
Carving out time and space to paint during the summer is an endeavor some of us plan. Some travel to workshops in distant locations, but others might not have the opportunity. If you are looking to take advantage of a beach location close to home I will be teaching a one week workshop in July. Living on the edge of the lake and a park offers opportunity to paint outdoor scenery but if indoors is preferred there is also the use of my home and studio as a base.

 It will be every morning 9:30-1:00 pm Monday to Friday.
Dates are July 15th -19th
Fee: $200 for the week
materials list will be provided

A consecutive block of time is a great way to immerse yourself in a body of work whether indoors or outside. Last summer enthusiasm ran high and I loved seeing the amazing work created. I'm looking forward to another great session. To register: email me at shamanstree@gmail.com.
