is pleased to welcome back Patrick Fanning, watercolorist and teacher
extraordinaire, for the 4th year in a row! Patrick is not only an extremely
talented artist, but he is also a gifted teacher who relates his knowledge
with patience, warmth and enthusiasm. Please join us for this retreat
where we will explore our beautiful tropical surroundings in paint.
Patrick is a landscape watercolorist who specializes in ‘plein air’,
or painting outdoors on location. Patrick teaches ongoing and weekend
workshops all over Sonoma County, California and recently opened a gallery
in Graton. He is interested in composition--ways to go beyond the usual
discussion of center of interest, foreground and background, line/color/value
contrast, and on. His wonderfully clear demonstrations and positive
teaching approach attract many different types of people with various
levels of art experience. For more on Patrick Fanning, visit his website
