Painting Information:  This is a Wilson Bickford inspired painting.  This is a great painting for beginners and advanced painters. Since we get our fair share of thunderstorms and lightning, I thought this would be a fun painting project.  You'll learn how to paint with a variety of brushes, how to create lightning and the shadow in the water.

TWO DATES OFFERED FOR THIS CLASS:  FRIDAY AND SATURDAY

Painting Information:  This is a Wilson Bickford inspired painting.  This painting shows more depth because we use black gesso on part of the background.  This is a fun painting to learn various techniques using a fan brush.  We use the fan brush to put in the trees and waterfall.  One lesson that you'll remember is that less is more.  There will be a few blow dryers to dry the acrylic faster so we can switch over to the oil paint.

Red Umbrella

Painting Information:  This is a Wilson Bickford inspired painting.  This painting shows more depth because we want it to look foggy in the background.  With the hazy sky, it makes the light from the lighthouse pop.  The sketch of the lighthouse will already be on the canvas as we want this class to stay around 4 hours.  We will use acrylic gesso paint on the lighthouse and foreground.  There will be a few blow dryers to dry the acrylic faster so we can switch over to the oil paint.

Foggy Lighthouse 5-12-17

REFUNDS:  In order to get a refund, you must email darla@paintwithdarla.com within 48 hours (two days) of the class date.  Some classes will have a waiting list and that gives us ample time to fill the seat.  Due to the circumstances of limited seating, this policy will be strictly enforced.  If you absolutely have to cancel attending the class and it's less than 48 hours, we can offer you a credit to be applied to another class.  

APRIL & MAY SPECIAL - $10 OFF ALL CLASSES (NORMALLY $60)

Painting Information:  This is a Wilson Bickford inspired knife painting.  This class is longer because of the detail of the couple.  Yes, beginners can paint this scene.  This is a knife painting so brushes are not used.  The sketch of the couple with the umbrella will already be on the canvas as to save time.  We will tape over and cut around the couple and umbrella.  After we paint the background, we will remove the tape and fill in the couple and umbrella.  You can get the detail with a knife using just a small amount of paint on the very tip of the knife.  Because this class is longer, the cost is still at a discount of $60 (otherwise it would be $70).
