SIMPLE, FAST & FOCUSED
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.
Dates: March 17-19
Location: Teta Smith Studio
Deposit: $50.00 to reserve your place. Checks may be made and sent to Teta Smith

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
