Casa de Los Artistas and its villas are built with the jungle and mountains behind them, with the river and ocean at their front door. Here inspirartion abounds, with tropical flora, fuana, and all the beauty the sun, surf and sea have to offer. A very special and safe retreat space.
Daily you can expect warmup paint sketching, brief painting and lecture demos, as well as indiviual and group critiques during this all inclusive week long workshop. Bob shares his unique techniques and years of painting experience in his warm and personal teaching style. This workshop will emphasize loose, expressive techniques, not necessarily photo realism techniques - of course, your style is up to you and Bob will help you with yours.

Essential Holland: Tulips in Spring River Cruise!
Loose, Impressionistic Sketching & Painting Workshop
March 28 - April 7, 2020
Travel with Bob and Kate while we watch Dutch spring come to life before our very eyes. We will discover the enchanting waterways and historic gems of the Low Countries. With 10 included tours, onboard entertainment, and a plethora of cultural discoveries, we will enjoy Holland and Belgium in an unforgettable way. We will enjoy the splendor of world-famous Keukenhof Gardens, the historic and culinary delights, of Belgium as we tour the artistic Antwerp and medieval Bruges. In addition we will visit the 19 UNESCO-designated windmills of Kinderdijk and interact with the local families and businesses while soaking in the culture.
No heavy plein aire equipment to lug around while we are painting villages, town squares, churches and landscapes. Bob will demonstrate every day, sketching, color pencil and watermedia techniques he uses in his studio and on location. He will help you to feel lighter, see clearer and paint the way you have always wanted to paint. Bob will also share his popular "Four Cs to make a Goof-Proof Painting," his Goof-Proof Color Wheel technique as well as his gallery and museum experiences.
Bob has updated his supply list and this version is more concise. Students can pack so everything is portable, with easy set-up and take-down. The group will have ample painting time to complete a comprehensive painting focusing on that day's objective. At the end of each day the group will meet for a critique and discussion of the next day's plan. Demonstrations, practice lessons, and plenty of individual assistance are the hallmarks of Bob's workshops. The mission of this workshop is to enjoy the outdoors with a group, guided by a master while experiencing the creative process.
