03feb(feb 3)10:00 am09(feb 9)5:00 pmPainting Retreat with Luis TamaniNature as an infinite source of inspiration.

Event Details

Luis Tamani will guide you in the use of painting as medicine.

The Medicine of patience and concentration. The Medicine of colours and Light. “I invite you to reveal the powerful and delicate creator of the magic you already are”.

On Earth, we can see that Nature is always teaching us how to adapt, how to evolve, how to amalgamate each moment, each part of Life. Our bodies are one of the infinite manifestations of this perfection.

Through this practice, I invite you to open your eyes to our environment, accustom your sight to discover the colours and of course, open your eyes to yourself.

For that, I invite you to bring a portrait of yourself or someone else. Anyone that you choose. And also various pictures of elements that you would like to appear on your painting.

The journey will start by recognizing how colours exist and how we can create them.

Then, we will take the time to transcribe the perfection of the portrait you chose, in its shapes and in its shades, and we will make the fusion with textures and the elements you selected.

Material to bring ;

  • Canvas – the size you are comfortable to work with.
  • Acrylic paint – I recommend you bring artist quality paint.  ( Golden  /  Matisse /  Winsor Newton )
  • Brushes – I recommend to bring artist quality brushes in various sizes which you feel comfortable to use.
  • Reference Photos – Portrait of your self or someone else. Plus some photos of different elements you would like to put into your work. Please bring good quality colour printouts/photocopies. By good quality we mean not having pixel noise.
