About this event

[Please note that I run this event in multiple locations .. do double-check the image above to be sure you have the one that is near to you]

Eric Braks* will explain, demonstrate and guide you in creating your own original, beautiful and successful small floral painting! You need not have picked up a watercolor brush before, but you will immediately be able to create original frameable work successfully at home!

Many people would love to paint, but struggle with the 'what to paint?' question. In this event you will be shown how to find more ideas than you can use, so it is just a case of deciding on your favorite original idea!

For others, the result of their work is continually frustrating. It is one thing to do and succeed at an artwork .. but all too often while other people might compliment the item, the artist can only see the struggle and the mistakes. This is not the relationship we want with our art! In this workshop, you will learn how to paint in a way that avoids overworking, and brings delight, even to your own eyes! (what a relief!)

For this workshop, you need no previous experience. We will use the same loose painterly technique Claude Monet used to create his waterlily paintings, but in the non-toxic non-smelly watercolor medium. You will enjoy this workshop, so consider getting a few tickets and bring some friends!

You will also learn to save a lot of money on painting supplies. I teach you how to get very good watercolor paper and pigments at a price that allows you to paint without worry!

After seeing and doing the process, you will be given direction on how to expand from this point, into creating larger works or working with other subjects. This is an afternoon of fun to get your new artistic self joyfully up and running! It is suitable for any serious art enthusiast from 16 years of age and older, and also for anyone simply interested in beginning or advancing their confidence in creating wonderful painterly artworks :)

The price per person is $85 which includes GST, plus all paints, brushes and paper! This venue is limited in size, so book a place as soon as you can!
