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).
#1Elio Camacho workshop July 5-9, 2010 Columbia River Gorge

Breathtaking views! What else can you say about this wonderful location. Simply one of the most spectacular places I have ever painted. 
Each time I paint my goal is to capture the particular mood of the moment and to express myself in a bold and colorful way and while capturing the beauty and spontaneity of nature. Putting passion and emotion into a painting is far more important then just making a copy of your subject.
If you have similar goals and want to learn to fill your canvases with color and boldness then this class may be for you.

Some of the things we will cover are:
  • Stroke angle and how it affect depth in thick loose strokes
  • Properly holding a brush to ensure you have limitless possibilities with your strokes
  • Brush speed
  • Time management and capturing the moment: The question most often asked is “how do you deal with the changing light”. We will cover efficient ways of painting so you dont waste strokes or motions.
  • Forget formulas and learn to “SEE”: Learning see nature as paint.
  • Color temperature
  • Harmony
  • Each day will end with a group critique

Me-Painting-at-Rocky-Point.jpgLong an admirer of the master impressionists such as Bongart, Sorrolla, and Fechin, in his mid-twenties Camacho decided to follow his childhood passion of fine art. Intensive studies with Ovanes Berberian led to the development of a distinct style with abstract brush work.
All of his paintings are in the Alla Prima style to capture the first impression and light on a given subject. He has exhibited in galleries and plein air painting events throughout the United States.


All the best
