2022 Master Artist Workshops 

David Lobenberg
California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture Workshop

August 27 & 28, 2002 
Time: 9 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. 
Where: The Patris Studio and Gallery 3460 2nd Avenue, Sacramento, Ca 95817 
Tuition: $180 for both days 

David says, "Absolutely no drawing experience necessary in my California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture™ workshop. I use a reference photo and tracing technique that’s super simple to execute. The creativity and painting fun begins during the painting process!

 Through my step-by-step demonstrations and question-and-answer sessions, I lead artists down a path of expressive, energetic and evocative portrait painting 

Throughout the course of the workshop, artists learn: 
* How to shoot dramatic, stylistic reference photos with a smart phone and natural daylight.
 * How to utilize a simple photo/tracing technique to prepare for the painting process. 
* How to bust through the color barrier.
 * How to mix gutsy colors with a minimal five-color palette.
 * How to merge positive and negative stencil embellishment techniques into their portraits.

 At the conclusion of my workshop, artists will have the where-with-all to follow their own path towards creating California Vibe Watercolor Portraits™!

an artist.  She is a generous host.  Within her studio she has created the
space for the beginning to advanced painter to improve their work by
learning from master artists. It's a fun and creative class experience. We
