OUR FIRST ART WORKSHOP ... with Becky Joy!

The key to plein air painting is being able to work out of doors. Unfortunately, after a year and a half of planning to hold workshops at Painted Views Ranch and months leading up to this one in particular, we were "blessed" with rainy weather on all three days as we hosted our first workshop. But even though there was only one chance for an outdoor session, (up on the hilltop, close to the classroom in case a hasty retreat might be needed) Becky Joy did an amazing job of filling the hours indoors with valuable information for all of our students. Becky's strategies for color mixing and plenty of practice with getting tonal values just right, made for a very beneficial and highly educational experience for all our attendees.

Becky told us it would not take much to get her back again, so with her and three other artists who have already expressed an interest in teaching here, 2016 should present great opportunities for artists to hone their skills.
