Annette Braught

Annette BraughtWhile growing up in a family of artist, I was always working on creating something. Even though further education was not an option, I never gave up my dream of painting.  I have taken many classes with several local artist and pastel workshops with Maggie Price, Richard McKinley and Margaret Evans. When teaching art, I think. It is not necessary to copy a picture or photograph, but to use it as a reference. It is important to understand the fundamentals of painting landscapes, values and mixing color.  For that reason I like to teach beginners along with those who have more experience.
