Keiko Tanabe will begin with the basics and discuss: the importance of perspective, understanding the importance of tonal values. Keiko will also show a variety of techniques in both paint application and brush handling, as well as how to simplify a complex scene.

The workshop is suitable for all levels, but a basic knowledge is strongly recommended.


You will paint a variety of subjects during the painting workshop, both in the large open studio and on location in Plein-air. While trying different approaches to discover what is most effective in creating the kind of atmosphere you most wish to achieve.

Keiko will complete at least one demonstration a day. Due to small artist numbers there will be ample opportunity for you to have private one-on-one guidance throughout the week.
