Beverly Boren Workshop: Simple, Fast & Focused March 17 – 19



Bev Boren is offering a three-day workshop at Teta Smith’s Studio.  In this workshop we will focus on simplification.  Simplification is the best means of planning and transforming what you see in a painting.  My technique for watercolor is an extension of my oil painting.  I have never practiced laying down graded washes because I never felt the need for them in my work.  I am sure they serve some watercolorists, but you won’t find much of that technique here.
We will work fast and loose.
Classes include daily demonstrations, and plenty of one-on-one personal instruction.

I use the mop brushes and if you already have some please bring them.  If you don’t I don’t require them as they are quite expensive
