Instructor: Christina Morrison

This is a fun two day workshop for  those who want to paint a boat in a very relaxed environment using acrylic paint.  The painting starts with a simple outline of small dinghy.  We will paint in the rest.

Reference photo will be supplied.  For those who feel more ambitious, I will have a few other alternatives which are not complicated once they are broken down.  Painting is easier than you think once you learn the steps.

The paintings in this posting are easily doable with some training.
