Snow Covered Pine in Oil Mini-Workshop

One-hour online on demand mini workshop at a very special price! If you've ever wanted to put snow covered pines in your snow scenes but felt they always looked too stiff, symmetrical and downright boring, this class is for you! You will learn from start to finish decisions on  composition,  a thumbnail sketch, all color mixtures, materials and brushes to create this painting from start to finish! Don't miss out on the fun of learning how to paint this and make beautiful snow covered pines a wonderful addition to your snow scenes. Workshop includes a Zoom meeting for critique for  your finished painting. You may watch it on your own time, any time, even paint along with me if you want, and the link will be available to you for one year. It is an "early bird special" price of $11.95, so don't delay! Upon registration, you will get a link to the video, supply list, photo reference and image of the <<...>> finished painting. Watch a short trailer here: https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/517634234

See Workshops on my website, www.cecyturner.com for more details.

My first online workshop, "Those Fleeting Moments" (painting a sunset in oil) is available for sign up NOW.

Shortly after registration you will receive an assignment, photo reference, supply list for the assignment painting, a link to Part I, plus information about critiques and more.

This workshop will include sketchbook value and composition planning, a complete demonstration start to finish of the above oil painting and a couple of Zoom question and answer and critique sessions - all for $34.95. You'll be able to watch whenever you want for a whole year and even paint along with me, if you so desire. I will provide motivational tips as well as explain everything I'm doing and why, including all color mixtures and brushes! See my website to sign up, https://cecyturner.com/workshops. Watch a short trailer on my homepage just under "Hill Country Sunset."
