Painting Retreat in Mexico 2014

By Ingrid Christensen
Painting Retreat in Mexico 2014
I'm going back to Mexico in February to teach another painting workshop at the Casa Buena Art Retreat.  It was amazing last year: the light, the sun, the people and the chance to stand on a beach and paint in February.  I have to do it again!
Casa Buena is located on the western coast of Mexico in the Nayarit region.  We land in Puerta Vallarta where our hosts pick us up.  From that moment until they drop us off at the airport a week later, everything is taken care of: meals, accommodation, and excursions.  All we have to do is paint and enjoy.
I'll be teaching plein air, portraiture/figurative and still life this year.  That sounds like a lot, but it's actually not.  My method is the same for any subject and my aims are too: intelligent use of colour, designing the shapes, and applying paint in a logical, decisive way.  Workshoppers will hear me say the same things whether I'm discussing the landscape, the figure or a piece of Mexican pottery that we're using in a still life set up, and, by the end of the week, they'll have a strong methodology that will serve them for any subject that they choose to paint.
I hope you'll join me for this adventure.
If you'd like more information or to register, please contact me or Jane at the Casa Buena Art Retreat.
