Join Artist Vera Kisseleva for a beginner-friendly workshop where you’ll discover the joy of painting vibrant forest scenes filled with luminous light! www.VeraKissArt.com

In this 4-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to mix vibrant colors and use simple compositional rules to create stunning wooded landscapes. You will also learn how to work with reference photos, to easily translate real-world beauty onto the canvas.

Vera will share some of the techniques she uses to create her own work. After a quick demonstration through the entire process of creating a forest painting full of light and shadow, you will have the opportunity to practice on a smaller canvas, explore the possibilities of acrylic paint, and refine your brushwork.

This workshop is suitable for all levels. Beginners are welcome!
