Dancing in the Footsteps of Sorolla (See his paintings above!)
Having marveled at the works of Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida, in his Vision of Spain series at the Hispanic Society of America in New York City as a young art student long ago, it has been a dream of mine to travel to the source of these amazing works. This workshop offers the opportunity to paint en plein air in the land of Sorolla, where he did countless studies of flamenco dancers, courtyards and garden scenes. My hope for this traveling workshop is not just to paint the landscape in and around the city and town of Seville, Spain, but to also paint the character of the people — who we hope to pose on several occasions in various morning and afternoon poses. Using the backdrops of beautiful garden settings, courtyards and along streetscape motifs, these sessions will begin and end each day with demonstrations in composition, light and color, as well as with hands-on instruction late into the evening and critiques of each day’s progress. Not to mention the richness of texture, great meals and complete immersion of Spanish flavors. I hope you will join me on this amazing adventure filing your senses with what will be an amazing and unforgettable creative experience.
