SCHOOL OF PAINTING

WORKSHOPS

Workshop location is on the beautiful Long Beach Peninsula in Washington State, Workshops Abroad and Tropical Workshops.
Our workshops are designed to loosen up even the tightest painter and break the niggling detail habit. Painting loose is much more than a technique. It requires an understanding of specific design concepts in order to free one’s mind. Each day, Eric will focus on one of these principles. He will show how to construct a beautiful painting in one sitting, and free creative thinking from cumbersome theories of color and composition. There will be time for individual instruction in a relaxed atmosphere. All levels of expertise and individual style will benefit from Eric’s broad depth of experience. Whether you are on the Peninsula, in Europe or in a tropical paradise…Eric will provide expert instruction and amazing experiences.
