Learn How to Paint Clouds

Saturday, February 17, at Palace Art in Capitola (11 am to 6 pm)

There’s nothing like clouds for color and drama, and they’re a fantastic subject for painting. You’ll learn about painting basic shapes, color mixing, blending, light sources, shadow, and perspective—all the secrets to great cloudscapes. You’ve got to try this!

Portrait Painting

Saturday, February 24, at Palace Art in Capitola (11 am to 6 pm)

This charming portrait by the great American artist John Singer Sargent hangs in the National Gallery, and it’s an ideal subject for our portraiture workshop. You’ll start with a specially marked canvas to help you through the early stages, and I will guide you with step-by-step demonstrations to keep you going. Learn about the art of portraiture in a relaxed, friendly setting. It’s a must-attend event!

California Landscape

Saturday, March 3, at Palace Art in Capitola (11 am to 6 pm)

American Impressionists often found their inspiration in the California landscape. Our subject for this new Paint Along workshop is William Wendt’s gorgeous “Rolling Hills” from 1920. It’s a great lesson in a dynamic use of color and creative brushwork. And you’ll finish the day with a beautiful painting.
