Как проходит мастер-класс

Veronika Lobareva:
"What is our master class and my my tasks?
Every artist has his experience. During our life we collected our secrets and methods. Therefore, the main task is to share it! Knowledge, skills, copyright, secrets…"
"But! All painters know that it isn't enough to became an artist. No enough the skills and secrets only. Where to find your inspiration? I am looking for it all my life and would like to share with you. I hope my experience will help you. And your experience will help me!"
"What have we time to do in a week? We will write a few paintings in the open air (landscape, urban landscape). You can see how I work and paint. I'll give you my advice about materials, tools, copyright techniques, secrets, tricks and best practices in the technique of oil painting. We'll talk about the various goals and objectives of the open-air work. And everybody will get my individual coaching".

Weather in Alicante in February
Alicante is protected by hills from the north. And this topography creates a softer, warmer microclimate compared to other areas of the country. There is not much rain here as in the neighboring regions. In the daytime the temperature can reach up to +20° degrees. It seems that you can open the beach season. There is no winter here. Every month something flowers and something matures. In February there are fresh tangerines, lemons, clementines and apples.
