Join Tad Retz for a day of multiple painting demonstrations and critiques. Tad will demo at one of his favorite painting locations close to home in Central New York. All Attendees will have the opportunity to paint and receive helpful advice and tips. This workshop will be focused around the idea of painting natural, organic scenes composed of rocks, trees, and running water with a simple set of materials and simple mindset.
This will be an intimate, personal workshop where questions and answers will be contemplated and tested in unique ways. We will experiment with multiple approaches to painting and push the fundamentals that have taken artists centuries to refine.
