Mural Joe Workshop – September 26-30

Effective Observation to Improve Your Painting

Join us in Flagstaff Arizona for five full days of studying and painting nature. I’ll teach how to make key observations in order to paint what you see. I’ll be covering popular “how to” topics such as rocks, water, clouds, depth and atmosphere, and more, while painting our landscapes together. Come to the place where I learned to “see” and paint, and let me show you my discoveries.

Learn to:

  • Paint from life or photos by practicing observation techniques both in the studio and in the field
  • Recognize light, shadow, and mid-tone of any object
  • Recognize the color of the air and reflections that don’t seem to have a color
  • See the larger shapes that are made of smaller shapes to improve accurate proportioning of objects
  • Use brush techniques to accomplishing different textures

Bring your questions!

A great workshop is question driven. We’ll spend time each day on your questions to make the most out of our time together.

The Mural Joe community is awesome! We always have a super fun time and enjoy learning from one another. Hope you can join us!

The workshop will be held at 2404 E Rt 66 in Flagstaff, Arizona. We have room for 15 attendees so buy your tickets now.
