About the Instructor:

Before the advent of digital photography Candy worked in a family business as a photographic artist which paved the way for her fine art career.  The move to Florida in 2010 saw her career expand to new mediums.  She studied under many experts in Acrylic, Mixed Media and Pastel. It was the influences of Flora Bowley and Joan Fullerton that led Candy to concentrate on intuitive painting and teaching. Candy teaches at the Dunedin Fine Art Center and the Life Enrichment Center. You can see her work online at

About the Workshop:

There are many ways to paint intuitively.  We are going to be working on 2 canvases at once using a limited palette.  One will be created using Black, White, Blue, Green, Quinacridone Nickel AZO Gold and Quinacridone Magenta.  The other canvas will replace the blue and green with Red and Yellow. You cannot make a mistake painting this way.  It is opposite of everything we have learned so far on our artistic journeys.

$50 for TRA Members, $65 for Non-Members
