Come play with luscious color on a cold winter day! In this workshop, artist Barb Hranilovich will guide you through the rich and unique palette of the winter landscape using the medium of your preference, whether watercolor, gouache, pastels, acrylic paints, or mixed media! Bring along the non-toxic media you feel most comfortable with (please, no oil paints). Barb will share with you tips and tricks to layering, washes, line work, color, and texture. Learn how to plan your composition and strategize an approach to help you achieve greater depth in your piece. Whether you tend toward abstraction, realism, or plein air (if you brave it!), you will benefit from exploring the colors of the season. This particular workshop is beneficial for painters at any skill level, especially those interested in learning new techniques, those interested in combining various media into one piece, or those seeking some professional guidance in their work. Please plan to bring your own selection of media (paints or pastels, brushes and paper or canvas) and some choices of reference imagery to help you get started.
