This workshop is designed to create a relaxed, fun, informative, yet intense working environment.

Learn to use the elements that make a painting stronger and exciting: creative use of color & edges, visual movement, paint application/ brush handling, distribution of abstract shapes and strong design.  
Additional things that will be covered.. 
*How to set up the model & lighting
*How to best use photography
*Discussion of art materials that Romel uses
*Putting together a portfolio for gallery presentation

Since the workshop students are at different levels the instruction will be individualized for each students specific needs.
