This is my first stone to step.
The beginning of a new BLOG to communicate a visual experience in art. In the days and weeks to come I want to paint an image, to you the reader, of what is in the frame of the artist's eye. It will be a bonus to me, having the honor to read and share all your comments and interpretations.

The Majestic Ranch Arts Foundation Workshop by Thom Evans
In this class you will learn short cuts and tricks to produce beautiful impressionistic paintings in no time at all.
You will learn composition, color selection and brush techniques, in a fun and relaxed environment.
Day One: An introduction to materials will begin the day, followed by a demonstration. Students will paint the same image as the instructor. One-on-one assistance will be provided as needed. Techniques and “tricks of the trade” will also be discussed and demonstrated throughout the day.
Day Two: An introduction to “painting the light” will begin the second day, followed by a “paint along”. This allows the students to utilize this new technique as the instructor is demonstrating it. Students will experience how this technique makes for a quick, clean manner in which to create a studio or plein air painting. Again, one-on-one assistance will be provided as needed.
Day Three: Solo Day! Students will paint a landscape image of their choice that is brought to class. This provides students the opportunity to demonstrate the techniques they learned the two previous days, with the instructor providing individual and group feedback throughout the day.
In this workshop you will learn many great techniques from Van Gogh's work to improve personal style and color composition, without copying his style. The principals of this workshop are for all level painters, whether oil or acrylic. Demonstrations and personal attention to techniques will be offered in both the classroom and on location. Learn new skills while having fun.
