Hada Fish Portrait Painting Workshop _ August 1

Our most popular and long running class with artist and guide Duane Hada.

You will create a beautiful original painting of a fish of your choice in the time honored classical sporting art style. Turn that “special catch” into a memorable piece of fine art! This will be a fun filled “can’t fail” workshop that you will definitely want to attend. Learn to paint with watercolor or choose acrylic, a more forgiving opaque medium, to achieve brilliant colors through a technique called “glazing” which Duane will demonstrate and teach, to capture the full spectrum of the trout palette!

You will be so proud and impressed with your piece!!!!
