Painting in Spain: Watercolor Painting Workshop
June 5-12, 2017 — There is only one thing that can be better than walking out the door towards a new destination with your paintbox in hand and that is to be joined in this adventure by friends. I am sure our adventure in the Costa Brava will be a wonderful experience and will give us memories for a lifetime. Painting out of doors is different than working in the studio - and nothing is as rewarding as working on location. The rewards are in the experience of the moment, the light, the air, the sounds, everything. This experience comes flooding back when you see your painting - even years later. It is what draws us outside again and again. Visit website

Painting in Spain: Watercolor Sketching Workshop
June 19-26, 2017 — Join us for a week of sketching with watercolor as we explore the breathtakingly beautiful landscape and architecturally unique villages of the Costa Brava. As a practicing architect, architectural illustrator and watercolor painter, I am passionate about travel sketching and painting, and love to share that passion with others. It does not matter if you have never sketched or painted (or think you can do neither) since I believe everyone can do this with just a little coaxing and coaching. The focus will be on individual expression and exploration. There is nothing that anchors memories (the view; the feel of the sun; the sounds; the smells; the immediacy of the moment) quite like the act of sketching and painting on location. Visit website
