Enjoyable time with new friends. Learned from the instructor some good skills for colored pencils.
Great beginner friendly class
I learned so much and the group vibe was amazing. I do hope that we all will meet again at another training opportunity. I will definitely be back to learn more. Thank you for such an amazing experience!??

I enjoyed it very much. Great location, good instruction, a nice group of people, etc. The instructor asked good questions to get a sense of where each of us were at and what we wanted to work on. Felt inspired! It was also a very relaxing experience.

I have been working with Acrylics since late last year. I started last year with with water color but I needed more "Pop". Water color is way too dull for me. I like bright happy colors. I have slowly gone from 5 x 7 paper last year to 18 x 24 canvas last week. This is my 2nd of that size but we won't talk about the 1st one.

I love painting water, it's my favorite subject for my paintings. I love painting it in all the possible conditions, including ice and snow, rain and fog, ocean waves or just small puddles. This one was painted from a photograph, but I changed the composition a little bit (I have to use my artist license sometimes! -)) On this painting I painted the water surface very calm, so I could enjoy playing with the reflections. This painting was selected by the Circle Gallery in Annapolis for the Stro

This was my first attempt at scraperboard and I was trying to create a picture with dramatic lighting that would make the most of the medium. As it turned out, a lot of the board was left black and untouched to represent the shadows, so it was easier than I thought!

A friend asked me to create a painting for her to give to her sister as wedding gift. She sent me some some ideas of colour pallettes she liked and I used a photo I had taken of the landscape in Oxfordshire as inspiration. I painted the whole canvas bright pink first and let it dry and then painted on top.
