Escape to France Painting Retreat!

*Seats filling quickly, don’t delay!* Limited seating.

Join award winning artist, Chris Brandley, for 10 glorious days of painting, exploring, and immersing yourself into the beautiful French Countryside of the Dordogne Valley. Chris will show you how to use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes and beautiful lighting into your paintings. She will demo in oils, but this retreat is open to those who work in oils as well as acrylics. Chris has over 28 years of experience in both media. In addition, she will show you how to create beautiful watercolor journals to keep as momentums from the trip. This experience is open for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced!

In this small group setting there will be descriptive and detailed step by step demonstrations along with one on one easel time and exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings. We will discuss color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more.

There will be plenty of time to relax and absorb the surrounding beauty as well.

Award winning artist, Judy Gelfert grew up in Bowie, Texas where she took an interest in drawing and painting. “Her paintings reflect her ever-enthusiastic attention to design and light in everyday surroundings, be it the landscape, urban scene, interior, or figure. Painting in her preferred medium of oils, Judy aims to capture the atmosphere and energy of a scene, inviting the viewer to share in the intimacy of the subject’s story.” Exhibiting her work began in 2002 and awards followed shortly thereafter including 1st Place in the National Society of Artists’ 22nd National Juried Competition, and acceptances in the 2005 and 2006 Oil Painters of America National Juried Competitions. Judy lives in Arlington, Texas with her children and her work is represented by Marta Stafford Fine Art in Marble Falls, Texas and The Good Art Company in Fredricksburg, Texas.
