I teach workshops in Calgary & surrounding areas, and on location when requested. Come join me and discover (or rediscover!) a love for painting! All my workshops have a few fundamentals: you’ll explore using design, color, temperature, value, saturation, and shape/edges. We also discuss light and shadow patterns, perspective, form and of course, drawing. My workshops are open to painters working in oils or acrylics.

Did you know that painting from a photo can be more difficult than painting from life? In this class you will learn how true this is. Our day together will be a mix of learning by watching demos and doing small, manageable exercises painting from real floral bouquets. You will learn:
- How to take seemingly complex areas and simplify them down to manageable shapes
- About value, temperature, saturation, edges, drawing and design, and light and shadow families
- How much easier colour mixing is when you can actually see your subject matter in front of you — no more trying to guess colours from bleached out or too-dark photos
