If you’re an artist planning a Spring getaway to the Forgotten Coast, consider planning your dates to coincide with this two-day workshop for the traveller (April 7 & 8 from 10 am – 1 pm each day).

Ever wanted to walk around your favorite historic neighborhood, downtown, or waterfront bar/restaurant and quickly draw and/or paint the scene in front of you in about an hour with a minimum amount of gear? Or how about when you’re stuck inside on a rainy day, and want to paint those favorite travel photos from your phone or tablet.

In this workshop, Mike Rooney, known to plein air artists from Key West to the Carolinas for his fun and insightful classes, will show you how to take a pen, a pad of paper, and a palm sized watercolor set and do just that. Make it a fast travel sketch or a finished painting; or create your own watercolor sketchbook journal. It’s up to you. Meet at the gallery and then go out and paint scenes in and around downtown Apalachicola. Rooney will cover drawing and watercolor tips like: simple tricks for perfect perspective; drawing and painting trees, buildings, cars, and people; watercolor techniques for washes, splatters, and more.

Mike is recognized as one of the east coast’s top plein air painters, and his work is widely collected. His natural straightforward approach has earned him many dedicated fans and followers over the years. Check out his Mike Rooney facebook page to see what he’s been up to lately. Class size is limited, so don’t delay; the cost is $80 for both days. For more info and to register, contact Live Oak Gallery liveoakgallery@gmail.com or call/text 305-393-4306.
