DOUG WALTON’S NEW YEAR’S ENCOUNTER

We still have places in Doug Walton’s  New Year’s Encounter, January 2, 3, & 4, 2015.

If you haven’t signed up yet, call or email us. 817,277.6961

 

Doug tells me that in this workshop he will be sharing a new approach to creating abstract imagery with tissue paper, latex and freezer paper-and then incorporating these abstract “skins” into painted compositions, “resulting,” says Douglas, “in images of the 21st century.” Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it?
You should bring enough watercolor paper or canvases for each day. You don’t really need to bring anything else but brushes. (Doug likes the Purdy brushes from Lowes.) Doug is providing his pallet of latex house paints.  He asks for $5 a day to cover his cost for paints and the other materials you will need.

 

ACCOMMODATIONS: The Thornton Inn is a charming and up-to-date bed-and-breakfast a walkable three blocks from the Gallery. Terry and Sunny Graham, the owners and managers, are offering a special rate for those attending the workshop, and the egg rolls are delicious. They’ll even give you a ride to the Gallery if you don’t want to walk.
