Welcome Back Demo – Cathy Boyd

CathyBoydDemoMonday, September 9 – 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Sky, Trees, Rocks

This demo will illustrate how to paint all 3 subjects into one well composed painting.  Cathy Boyd will demonstrate using oils but will give valuable tips for those using acrylics also.  A loose, thin sky, a windswept pine and some craggy rocks. Using a reference photo, Cathy’s emphasis will be on painting quickly to achieve a colourful, impressionistic painting. 
Sunday, September 29 – 9:30 am to 3:30 pm 
To register please contact Mary Espinosa,
