Hello everyone,here are 3 different opportunities to paint, play and learn from my good friend Elio in his signature Alla Prima style. I have taken two workshops in the last few years with him and always learn so much and have such a great time that I look forward to pushing my self again.Join Elio Camacho for five days of plein air painting instruction on the Columbia River Gorge. Elio studied under Russian Impressionist Ovanes Berberian and is influenced by master impressionists such as Bongart, Sorrolla, and Fechin. Last year Elio was named "Artist to Watch" in the July Issue of Southwest Art. Students of Elio can't say enough good things about him: (reviews and testimonials here).
