AWA Webinar: Learning from the Masters

April 25 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Associate with Distinction member Sharon Weaver will guide you through viewing paintings by the masters to understand what makes a painting great. Sharon’s art combines her understanding of nature with her exceptional drawing skills to create unforgettable images. The bold and unique colors in her work, much like the California Impressionists who first inspired her, are a feast for the eyes and touch the soul.

Sharon states:  I have been teaching how to paint the landscape for over ten years and during that time I have come away with a lot of interesting ideas about what makes a painting great. One way to see great design is to study the master. Through their example, I have learned many lessons. To understand your work you need to analyze it and make comparisons. Of course nothing is a substitute for practice but today let’s start with a look at the masters and try to understand what makes a painting great.
