PAINTING NATURE WORKSHOPS
Suitable for Acrylic Painters. Beginners or Intermediates.
Paint alongside accomplished Wildlife and Nature painter Peter Potapoff as he teaches you tricks of the trade of Landscape Painting. This Series of 1 Day Workshops will run through the process of realistically depicting elements that painters often find challenging: Grasses, Trees, Snow, Water, Rocks.
Using the instructor's photo reference students will be collectively guided through the same 11x14" study of the topic at hand. Learn to convincingly paint grasses and trees without painting every blade or leaf. Learn how to create dimension while painting snow or rocks. Learn how to recreate transparency and movement of water in your paintings.
Leave each workshop with one 11x14" painted study and the confidence to take on more challenging landscape scenery in your own artwork.
