Realize your talent as a realistic painter!
There's no better time than the present to learn the skill you've always wanted to master - the art of realistic painting. Study and improve your technique in one or both of two-week long hands-on workshops with J. Robert Burnell, an artist who is considered a master of his medium.

In the Watercolor Workshops, beginning to intermediate painters will learn to work with transparent watercolors following examples of landscapes, marine scenes and floral works. The workshops will address the importance of paper selection, color mixing using the basic six color pallete, composition, perspective, and presentation. More experienced painters will learn the benefits and pitfalls of using technology to layout subjects, gaining an understanding of working from photographs. Both classroom instruction and informal critiques will be included.

The Acrylic Workshop is geared for students at all levels of painting experience. Participants will take away improved techniques in the application of paint, color mixing, masking, and final varnishing as well as greater understanding of the use of various mediums and selection of grounds.
