Painting Spain! Come Join Me…

I am thrilled to be hosting my inaugural European plain air painting workshop from May 11 – 18, 2015 in Costa Brava, Spain. This is a spectacular Mediterranean coastal location rich with light and painting subjects. Barcelona is our gateway, Calella de Palafrugell  our home base for the week. With sun-kissed coves, colorful fishing boats, cafes, and gardens, the Costa Brava is historically a treasure trove for artists. Come immerse yourself in a cultural and creative feast.

As a Golden Artist-Educator, my plein air workshops are all about creating a road map to design and color fundamentals. Working in a loose, alls prima style, we will consider ways to make our work more dynamic, colorful and free. I will demonstrate Golden’s Open Acrylics, beautiful new QoR watercolors and Williamsburg oils. All levels and mediums welcome. I encourage working in acrylics for their versatility and forgiveness. We will have fun with journaling, working in alternative color palettes, building confidence in color mixing, brush handling, and ways to expand our creative approach to plein air.

The workshop, along with hotel, meals, and cultural sites and transportation in Spain is $2999. Airfare to and from Spain and incidentals are not included. This early-bird price is only good until November 30. Want to join? Check out my website at http://www.kirahfineart.com.

In the meantime, here’s a sampling of what’s in store:
