DESCRIPTION

Watercolor can be equally frustrating and exhilarating for the urban sketcher. In this workshop we will start with a review of the basics and attack some of the most common problems sketchers run into.

We will then go a step further and introduce tools you can use outdoors to pimp your watercolors!
We will splatter with toothbrushes and alcohol, apply paint with a mouth atomizer, use markers to add value and punch, try our hands at colored pencils, gouache and gel markers and play with watercolor on pre-treated paper.

We will produce many small sketches on location, giving participants the chance to identify what they like out of a wide range of tools. This workshop is bound to expand your repertoire. Oliver will provide a comprehensive handout, demonstrations and feedback throughout.

INSTRUCTOR

When he was 9 years old, Oliver wanted to be an artist, a scientist and a pirate. He had a gallery in his bedroom and caught salamanders for his terrarium. Fast forward: Oliver holds a PhD in molecular biology, and in 2015 combined his passions: He runs an illustration service focused on sciency topics.

Oliver loves reportage and has published a travelogue No Road In No Road Out: Slowboating the Amazon, which was selected as a finalist for the Reportager Award. He tends to see the humorous and ironic and has taught sketching workshops in the Bay Area and Europe.
