"Painting Tour in the Loire Valley: Perspective Sketching in Watercolor"
June 24 - July 1, 2020

Join me for sketching on-location in the lush Loire River Valley! Embark on this eight day painting holiday which takes you on a journey of discovery through some of the most prominent chateaux and gardens of this famous UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your paintings will be inspired by some of the grandest and most beautiful architectural structures in France like Chenonceau, Clos Luce and Amboise. Learn to capture your experiences on paper, and more important, in your mind and heart. In this workshop, we’ll focus on quickly capturing buildings and spaces, as well as skies, trees and water. I’ll do lots of quick demos and provide hand’s-on guidance as you sketch and paint the beautiful scenes around us.
