“Hi Vlad: Just want you to know that your workshop recently at the Lion’s Club in Key Largo was my all time best educational experience. You helped me see so many aspects of watercolor painting that all the books I have read failed to do. And you did it with good humor, caring and a genuine passion that really left an impression on me that will carry me forward. I have long admired your work so it was good to get to know the artist and be privy to your methods and mental approach to art. Thanks again for all you did!” –  Paul R.

Bridges of CumberlandThe ultimate goal of this workshop is understanding of perspective, light and values and applying it to a practical scenario working in studio and on plein air for creating believable 3D feel on the 2D surface. This method works for every medium. You will also learn how to sort and edit nature’s often overwhelming visual detail into dramatic compositions.
This workshop will cover the perspective theory during the first day working primarily in Studio from photographs and diagrams. Second and third days students will work outside practicing through drawing and painting series of exercises progressing from simple views to more complex settings. We will visit and paint the most spectacular places in Sarasota.
