Evoking a Sense of Nostalgia

"How the heck does she do that?"

Wondering what water mixable oil paints are all about? Known for blurring the line between watercolor and oil paintings, Beth Bathe's unparalleled style evokes feelings of nostalgia, like an old sepia-toned photograph. Beth uses unconventional tools including squeegees and Q-tips, along with her brushes focusing on composition, values, edges, and drawing rather than color.

During this three day intensive workshop, Beth shares her unique technique with students. In the morning Beth will do a demo and show how she uses photography and simple apps on her phone to simplify forms, enhance value, and emphasize composition. In the afternoon students will work from photos (either bring your own on your phone/iPad, or Beth will have prints to share).

Students will be working in water mixable oils. All supplies for this workshop will be provided by the instructor and are included in the price,

This workshop is for all levels of painters - from beginners to returnees.
