June 21-23, 2019 “Success Every Time” with Karin Richter

The purpose of this retreat/workshop is to have time to observe nature and take in the sights that will inspire participants to do their own paintings. Karin will review many basics: how to see and how to take great photographs to translating what interests us into a successful work of art based on solid principles of composition and design, great colour and values. Any medium or technique is welcome. The things that are important in painting apply to all ways of expression. Our days will be filled with observing from nature in this beautiful environment by doing some plein air work, allowing us to develop concepts and ideas. We will then work on paintings either outdoors or in the studio to realize our impressions and vision. Be prepared to review, learn, be challenged and emerge a better painter!
