Portrait Painting Demonstration in Oils: February 24

One of my all-time favorite artists and teachers will be in Birmingham on Wednesday, February 24th to do a painting demonstration in oil at Portraits Inc. (formerly Portrait Brokers of America).  Dawn Whitelaw is not only a terrific painter, she is a wonderful communicator about the painting process and has taught and inspired a legion of wonderful painters including Michael Shane Neal and Roger Dale Brown.

Reservations for the demonstration and the lunch to follow are required.  Space is limited so don't wait to get your name on the list.  My personal recommendation is to bring along some "opera glasses" or small binoculars so you can observe the painting and her brushwork as if you are on top of the painting yourself!  It was Dawn who taught me this trick and I've been grateful ever since!
