Mexico Workshop



I invite you to join me for a fabulous week of painting, sunshine and warm hospitality in Mexico this winter.  I'll be teaching a comprehensive workshop at the beautiful Casa Buena Art Retreat in the Mexican back country near old Port San Blas, Nayarit, (80 miles north of Puerto Vallarta) from February 20 to 27, 2013.

The workshop will cover all aspects of plein air and figure painting from making effective colour choices to developing strong compositions and expressive brushstrokes.  And there is no end to the colourful subjects that we'll paint: a busy marketplace, the lush. untouched jungle, a lovely woman in traditional dress and more.  Every day I'll demonstrate and offer individual instruction and feedback.

This workshop is suitable for acrylic and oil painters of any level, beginner to advanced.

While we're busy creating art, Jane and Dallas, our friendly hosts at Casa Buena, will be working to create a memorable experience.  Their beautiful retreat is filled with colour, art, comfort and great food.  You can check out pictures of the retreat on their website: http://www.casabuenaartretreat.com

For more information and registration, please contact Jane at: janerom@shaw.ca , phone in Canada: 1.403 560.0894 or contact me.

I hope to meet you there.

Happy painting!

That sounds like a goldmine of opportunity to learn, Ingrid!

Love the painting of the girl with native garb. Excellent work.

I'm excited about it, Dean. And it will be so great to escape the snow in February!
