Oil and Pastel (5 Day Workshop, over 6 days).
Wednesday August 20 - 27, 2014
This workshop offers an exciting approach to plein air oil painting and pasteling with a focus on the landscape and architecture of the Dordogne. Whether you are a beginner or advanced artist, my goal is to help you reach a new level of understanding and sophistication in your work. There is so much going on this week - be at the Chateau for the Fetes de Villars weekend and the annual fireworks over the Chateau on Sunday August 24!
