Watch how Ron energizes his paintings through color and shape, with quick, deft brushwork honed from capturing scenes in his sketchbooks.

Creating Beautiful Paintings from Travel Photos with Ron Stocke
Saturday & Sunday, September 1st & 2nd, 2012
11 am to 5 pm, $180 for the 2 day workshop

In this two day workshop Ron will demonstrate his technique and show you how to capture the essence of your vacation experience in a loose watercolor painting. This class will focus on simplifying shapes, emphasizing values and capturing the feel of your subject matter with loose exciting brushstrokes.
Ron uses his sketchbook extensively to help simplify his composition and recommends students bring a sketchbook to class. Each student will be encouraged to paint 3 to 4 half sheet paintings over the two day workshop (or as large as they feel comfortable).
So pull out those photos from London, Paris, Rome or wherever you spent that dream vacation and let’s turn them into some great paintings!
