Boats and harbors carry a unique sense of inner calm and adventure. Sailors and boaters all know what I mean. And for those of us who paint, we want to convey all of that emotional content in our paintings. But that's tough to do if you don't feel confident with the subject. In this workshop, I'll help you gain a steady hand on the tiller!

 

Primary emphasis will be on achieving the true character of boat shapes. Secondary emphasis will be on the various aspects of painting calm water and making it look wet. Additional focus will cover painting rigging and other details. Students will have the opportunity to observe a complete 16 x 20 demo painting. They will also develop their own paintings and receive personal instruction at their easels.
