Wondering what Water Mixable Oil paints are all about? Known for blurring the line between watercolor and oil paintings, Beth Bathe's unparalleled style evokes feelings of nostalgia, like an old sepia-toned photograph. Beth uses unconventional tools including squeegees and Q-tips, along with her brushes focusing on composition, values, edges, and drawing rather than color.

During this two day intensive workshop, Beth shares her unique technique with students. In the morning Beth will do a demo and show how she uses photography and simple apps on her phone to simplify forms enhance value and emphasize composition. In the afternoon students will work from photos (either bring your own on your phone/iPad, or Beth will have prints to share). 

Students are encouraged to use water mixable oils to get the most out of the workshop. Beth will have paint for her students to try as well as her prepared painting panels, brushes and other supplies for you to use during the workshop.

This workshop is for all level of painters - from beginners to returnees.


Day 1

Day 2

 Demo paintings will be available for purchase from workshop attendees.


About Beth Bathe :

From Lancaster PA, Beth Bathe’s award winning representational paintings have been described by art critics as “evoking nostalgia, like that of an old sepia toned photograph, often with just touches of color.”

Curiosity about the medium Beth works is often the first question of many viewers. Is it watercolor, is it oil? Beth’s answer: “somewhat both.” She works with Water Mixable Oil Colors in a limited palette, using brushes and unconventional tools. Beth crisscrosses the country, painting en plein air and participates in over ten high-profile juried and invitation national competitions a year. She loves the travel and catching up with her artist friends who are often compared to “carnies”, traveling from competition to competition.

Beth was a featured artist in the 2018 February/March issue of PleinAir Magazine and in the Dec/Jan 2021 issue in an article about water mixable oil paints.
