Watching the birds that you see in your garden is a satisfying experience and they can make such a charming painting subject. Lina will show you the secret to painting birds that seem to come alive on the canvas. Learn to create volume and form and to paint a realistic-looking bird without painting each individual feather. The morning demonstration will be in oils, and then Lina will help you design your composition and offer tips on improving your painting. Feel free to paint in the medium of your choice.

For the intermediate to advanced painter. We will paint from reference photos. There will be several photos to choose from, but you may bring a photo of any bird you would like to paint. Please respect copyright and do not bring a photo from a magazine unless you have written permission to use that photo.
