Painting Mallorca in Watercolor
A Sketchbook Journaling Workshop with Karen Ramsay
Come join us and capture Mallorca in watercolor! As we fill our art travel journals with sketching and watercolors, Karen will give us tips and tricks for improving this special skill. Sketching on location, while traveling, is an art form that you can take with you on every future trip. The daily sketches that you create will become a treasured visual diary of your travel.
From an early age, Karen Ramsay has had a love for drawing and painting. She is a graduate of the Colorado Institute of Art in Denver and has been featured in the Big Sky Journal as an "Artist of the West”. Other accolades include: Paint The Poudre: People's Choice Award, Wild About Colorado: Best of Show and the Colorado Watercolor Society: Member Show Award.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP AND THE AREA:
During this week in Mallorca, we will explore the island, its many scenic areas - from the gorgeous views over the Mediterranean Sea to the small quaint towns in the Tramuntana mountain range:
Fornalutx, one of the prettiest villages of Spain, with its cobbled streets and terracotta roofs, surrounded by well-tended orange and lemon groves. The artist town of Deia, home to celebrities such as Michael Douglas, perched in a ravine at the foot of the Teix mountain, with views out to the Mediterranean below and with an interesting museum dedicated to the writer Robert Graves. Valldemossa, once a home for Frederic Chopin and George Sands, with art galleries, a 400 year old olive estate, outdoor cafes and restaurants. Soller, a charming town with an impressive cathedral, dating from the 1200s and a botanical garden with many endangered local plant species. Palma, once a laid-back capital, now a cosmopolitan city, with a bustling city center and a preserved old town.
