Workshop Description:
Join painter and instructor Donna Bland for two days of Studio Landscape Painting, with emphasis on translating nature’s plein air accents in a studio setting.

Donna has a passion for expressing  nature through her paintings. She will teach and demonstrate techniques for capturing a scene quickly with color values. Also, she will discuss composition and color harmony. The first day everyone will paint from photos Donna will bring, and the second day will be your choice (bring landscape photos you would like to work on).

With 15 years of classroom and personal instruction, Donna offers lots of help at your easel.
