Wednesday, October 5, 5:00pm - 6:30pm PST

We will paint a single subject at different timed increments of one, two, five, 10, 15, and 30 minutes. Taking the time to pause and reflect after each timed  painting to review what we painted and how we choose to move forward. Do those extra minutes mean there is more time to dry between colors? Do you have an extra minute to include a detail that you didn’t have time for the last one? Do you have extra time to mix that perfect color? or sketch on the side to practice? 

There are so many different questions we can ask ourselves to decide what details are important to us. What will this practice look like for you? 

This lesson takes the single subject in its most simple form from the most basic shape and colors, to a detailed study.

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!
