Sept. 21, 2008 - PRLog -- Bron Smith, photorealistic artist, teacher and tour guide introduces the upcoming Painting In Paradise Workshop, which, this year is located in the Cook Islands of the South Pacific.

Artists and people who want to become artists will enjoy six unforgettable days of exploring, researching, sketching and painting the flamboyant tropical flowers of Rarotonga, in the South Pacific Ocean.

“The principle island in the Cook Island group, Rarotonga comes into full bloom during November, December and January.,” says Smith “We will be there during prime time to capture the exotic Bougainvilleas and Hibiscus at the height of their bloom.”

Mornings of the workshop will be devoted to painting classes. The afternoons will be filled with excursions around the island. During the classes you will learn the techniques of drawing and painting realistic florals in watercolor. Bron will also show you how to subtly add other mediums to your watercolor painting to greatly enhance the dramatic effect.

If you are looking for an exotic vacation, Painting in Paradise may be your answer. Try to imagine spending time in a beautiful, relaxing spot hidden half way around the world. Then add to your vision learning to paint pictures of this paradise so realistic your family and friends may mistake them for photographs.
