Dick Ensing

Saturday & Sunday

Rescheduled to October 23rd & 24th,  2021


Fee: $250

This workshop will be an opportunity for students to use water-mixable oils, which will be provided. This medium has such versatility and is a great way for watercolorists, oil and acrylic painters to experience this medium without great expense. This class will focus on how to paint an early morning landscape from beginning to end. Early morning colors are cool and late afternoon colors are warm. You will learn how to mix colors to achieve a dynamic feeling of the moment, how to understand perspective, to paint trees and grass, to paint without creating mud and to use the color wheel to your advantage. You will gain an understanding of the five basic steps to painting.
