Painting Flowers Alla Prima

May 17-19th, 2023

Instructor: Ashwini Bharathula 
Cost: $330

Location: Scottsdale Artists’ School, Scottsdale AZ.


The goal of this workshop is to bring clarity and ease to painting flowers. A big part of floral painting is to slow down and pay close attention to the intricate transitions in color and value and to the variety of edges. Using simple compositions, Ashwini will demonstrate how to achieve these transitions on the canvas via accurate color mixing and intuitive brushwork. Ashwini will do a demo in the morning on each day and offer assistance and feedback one-on-one to all the students on their paintings in the afternoons.

Call Scottsdale Artists’ School at 480-990-1422 to register.

Ghost Ranch Workshop —Painting Plein Air

September 25 - October 3, 2023

Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico


This is an intensive 8-Night, plein air workshop at the gorgeous Ghost Ranch where Georgia O’Keeffe lived and worked. You will experience a private landscape tour to see where O’Keeffe painted on the property. I have rented the entire art center and you will have your own table and easel there so that you can paint whenever you’d like. Each room is private with an ensuite bath. All meals are included along with one lunch at the famous Abiquiu Inn. We will paint at gorgeous locations all around the ranch and in Abiquiu too. There will be an additional option to go on the private tour of O’Keeffe’s home in Abiquiu. It’s very hard to book tickets to this but I have procured them. 


We will cover topics like design and composition, color mixing and how to incorporate different techniques with your acrylics and oils to keep your artwork fresh, loose and impressionistic. This is for advanced beginners to intermediate levels. 


Everything is included except, airfare, transportation and art supplies. Sharing a rental car is suggested. 


Rachael McCampbell has taught art for 15 years and takes groups to both Europe and to different locales in the US to paint. Her art is collected by museums, corporations and private collectors all over the world. 


Private Room with private bath for 8 nights: $3,500

Shared Room with Shared Bath for 8 nights: $2,900
