For Christmas Jeremy bought me some vouchers for Cheers Pablo. They recently opened a location in Burnsville, not too far from home. Cheers Pablo is like a canvas and wine type place where they show you how to paint a masterpiece step-by-step. Something I’ve been afraid to try before. Fearless this year.
We got there a little early. We checked in, got a spot, and stopped by the bar for some snacks. Everyone working there was so nice and very helpful. It was a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere.
Each canvas had some pencil lines outlining the main structure of the painting. We then painted over the pencil lines and added some buildings.
Melissa, our instructor, went at a great pace. I felt like I had plenty of time to complete each step. And a few times I had time to perfect some lines.
Our next step we put down some base colors and added some arches to our bridge.
Next we added some shading and depth to the bridge and sky. We finished off the painting by adding details to the buildings and bringing in some white to contrast the dark colors of the bridge.
The Stone Arch Bridge is one of my favorite places in Minneapolis. I’m so excited to have this hanging in our living room.
