We all take photos while on vacation, so join Instructor Daphne Gawronski and learn how to turn them into watercolor painting masterpieces!  Daphne has created a series of classes focusing on learning how to paint travel-scapes like seascapes, landscapes, mountainscapes, and cityscapes, that you experienced in your travels.  So, grab your photos, paintbrushes & paint and let’s get started!

This first class is all about the beach. Whether in the Caribbeans or Southern California, Daphne will help you understand how to paint sand, surf, sky, surfboards, palm trees, etc.  She’ll show you several techniques including washes, stippling, wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry methods so you’re able to capture your photo’s details in your painting.  This class is great for beginners as well as those with some experience in this versatile medium.
