The workshop will be for 2 days in Havana FL with an indoor facility available for initial coordination and basic instruction for the 1st hour. We will first go over general guidelines for how to look for ideal subject matter (the hardest part), doing a maximum 1 minute sketch of the basic composition, and immediately starting the painting. As soon as the paint begins to dry, we then apply the ink to strategically bring out the major details only.

The concept is to finish the sketch in less than one hour. This will allow you to capture the essence of your travel memories within the time constraints usually encountered.

Don will get started with individuals at different locations and then continually move around to work with everyone to help with any problems they may have.

This is not a “how to paint” workshop, rather a “how to organize, compose, and work quickly” workshop! It becomes addictive the more you do it, and helps you in composing your studio paintings if you use photographs.
