I am very happy to share this memory and painting with you. One morning while on a personal retreat at Anam Cara on the Beara Peninsula of Ireland, I went for a long walk, along a country lane. The lane winds around, up and down, overlooking the sea. Turning a corner, I was stopped in my tracks.
The sight of the worn working clothes, blown by the wind off the water hit me with a visceral impact that I cannot rationally explain. I just knew I had to paint it.
Creating a strong painting from a photograph is challenging; no matter how inspiring the scene and the moment. In this workshop we will discuss the ways in which we can do this, working from the original photograph to the finished painting.
From the poignant mood of this scene; the texture of the worn cloth – the sense of loneliness and the limited palette, we will add to your vocabulary of skills for your future paintings.

“Evelyn, you are an extraordinary teacher — gifted with an ability to provide clear instruction, generous with your time and praise, clearly passionate about sharing your hard-earned expertise, and, even better, driven to ensure your students succeed. I’ve learned more from the workshops I’ve attended with you than I have in the collocation of books I’ve acquired over the past year or so and all the videos I’ve watched online combined. Finding a teacher like you is akin to discovering gold.”
“This was an excellent workshop: Evelyn Dunphy is such a calm, organized, & effective instructor. I greatly appreciated how she managed to keep everyone moving forward, yet allowed people to work at their own pace. In particular I appreciated & benefited from her frequent individualized feedback & critique during the sessions”.
“This workshop encouraged and enabled a huge step in my painting in terms of subject, attention to detail, palette, planning, and patience. The format allowed a lot of teacher-student time because everyone got a front-row seat to everyone else’s questions and consultations with Evelyn. Technically, the computer contacts were really well managed. Practically seamless! Thank you.”
