T2 Taos Painting Workshop with Martha Mans

Paint with artist Martha Mans in beautiful Taos, New Mexico.  This workshop will give you the tools you need to improve your ability to design exciting paintings. Paint in several beautiful autumn Taos locations after a morning session in which Mans will demo a painting while emphasizing the painting elements that you will concentrate on that day. There will be lessons and exercises in how to use value structure to see and understand your subject better.  Understanding the importance of values (darks and lights) and how to interpret them into color is central to a dynamically designed painting. Discover how to travel lightly with watercolor so that you can paint anywhere. After a day of painting we will gather for a critique. Some experience in preferred painting medium and plein aire painting are highly recommended.
