Lighthouses are always a beautiful subject to paint in any medium. 
My favorite lighthouse is the "Pigeon Point Lighthouse" on the coast of California.
Built in 1871 and about 50 miles south of San Francisco, it is the tallest lighthouse on the west coast of the United States. 
This particular workshop has been packed with so much valuable instruction that it had to be divided into 2 separate days.
Here's just some of what we'll be covering both days...

Day 1:
*How to paint a dramatic cloudy sky and at the same time direct focus in your painting.
*How selecting the right tools for the job will make or break your painting.
*How to balance the wetness in brush, paper, and pigment for predictable results.
*How to use photographs as inspiration more than reference.
*How to match "local" color in your painting. (the actual color you see in your subject)
*How to use glazing techniques to paint a convincing ocean scene.
*Artist Q&A session.
Day 2:
*The most convincing and effective way to paint rocks in watercolor.
*How to use the "6 Steps to Any Watercolor" to build a scene from lightest to darkest value.
*How to have ultimate and predictable control over over the medium when you need it.
*How to simplify and break down complicated subject matter.
*How to use shadows to turn forms.
*Refining and defining your painting for maximum impact.
*Bringing it all together - the keys to a cohesive painting.
*Artist Q&A Session.
And so much more!
