"Painting in Spain: Travel Sketching in Watercolor"
May 14-21, 2023

Join me for one week of sketching with watercolor in beautiful Spain. Drawing while traveling is the best way to experience and remember a new place. When we see new sights everything strikes us as unusual, memorable and inspiring. We have a natural desire to admire new vistas, taste new flavors, inhale unusual aromas and record these sensations through taking photos, but also through drawing and writing. For me, drawing while traveling is instinctual, and I am eager to share my passion to fully immerse yourself in a new place through the practice of travel sketching. I will share some of my favorite watercolor techniques and tips on drawing architecture, water, and greenery.

This plein-air watercolor workshop with Stella Canfield is all about you! Stella will help you to develop your own creative process and finish a painting every day (if not two!). From sketching to design, color, light and techniques until applying emotion, brush strokes, and final touches, Stella will be there for you, making sure you feel comfortable and confident with your process. Plan on working hard and having fun at the same time. The challenge you will overcome will be leaving worries and limits behind and “get into the Zone”. You will free yourself of pressure and judgment and enjoy the creative process as we create for no one else but ourselves. There are no limits to creation!
