Powerful Design, Sensual Edges Put together with Exciting Color

More about the Workshop

We all want to create paintings that have strong design but sometimes we run out of ideas and find ourselves doing the same design over and over.

We also know that color is very powerful but knowing which colors to mix is a mystery.

Then there are the edges that add sensuality.  How does one get those edges that make such a strong statement.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to never be without a powerful design
  • Learn all about color, mixes that are incredibly beautiful and where to put them
  • How neutrals will enhance your work to make it mysterious yet commanding
  • How to use the brush to achieve edges you admire

You will learn in a very supportive environment.  Gwen has taken a very sad 100 year old Adobe home and refurbished her back to her glory.  Surrounded by 6 and 8 ft walls this is now an exquisite compound filled with gorgeous flowers, Mexican gates and a studio where the retreat will be held.

Wilson, the gentle Sable German Shepherd, will welcome you with his noble presence. Wilson loves everyone who comes to create.

Lunch will be provided all five days

Sunday evening, before the workshop begins, there will be a wine and cheese get together.  This is a fun filled evening getting to know everyone plus setting up your space for the workshop.

On Thursday evening, you will be treated to a magnificent sit-down dinner that takes place under the stunning New Mexico sky. The table will be decorated in cobalt blue and luscious lime green, flowers picked from the garden and flickering candles add to the laughter and sharing that makes this evening one to remember.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about the workshops/retreats.

This retreat will fill fast!
