Watercolour Landscape Workshop with Lavender & Sage Co.
5 October @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm$55 – $80
Landscapes and Urban Settings are some of my most favourite pieces to paint. Watching a landscape come to life with vibrant florals and layers of texture is such a beautiful experience.
In this 2 1/2 hour workshop, we’ll go over some of my most favourite painting techniques, tips and trips I’ve discovered along my artistic journey, and cover some stylistic qualities you can add to make your piece(s) come alive.
You’ll have the opportunity to create 2-3 small landscape paintings to bring home with you, and if you’re purchasing a premium workshop ticket, you’ll take home a goodie bag of my most favourite art supplies for landscape painting.
Standard workshop tickets include the use of all the supplies you need to create your masterpieces, and you’ll get to bring home 2x 5”x7” landscape paintings of your very own!
Premium tickets include the use of all of the supplies you need to create your masterpieces, as well as a goodie bag full of my favourite art supplies to bring home along with your 2x 5”x7” paintings!
