    Painting is our reflection and perception of what we see and feel. If you respond to the passion that is inside of you that is when the real painting comes out.

    In this one-day workshop, Oksana Zhelisko will show you how to turn an ordinary landscape into a vibrant colour story of your own.  You will take inspiration from your own landscape reference photos or sketches and elevate them to a unique, expressive work of art. You will also learn about vibrant colour mixes, strong composition methods, and the importance and evaluation of background versus foreground. You will create two small studies.

    A supply list is available after registration is received. 

    A minimum of 10 people are needed for this workshop to proceed.
