MAY 8 MEETING FEATURES RON RENCHER
Our guest speaker for our May 8 meeting will be Ron Rencher, a plein air painter extraordinaire! Take a look at his work on his website. You won’t want to miss this meeting. Ron will be discussing how to use color, shapes, and values to create unity and harmony in a painting. Ron currently lives in Wimberley but will be relocating to Taos so we are lucky to have caught him before he takes off.
WORKSHOP, WORKSHOP!! MAY 9TH
Ron will teach a one-day workshop on landscape painting and how to bring life to a painting by the proper use of values and color temperature. The workshop fee, including lunch, is $135 for members and $170 for non-members. To register, email Kathie Carlson.
