Event description

Description

This will be a watercolor workshop for all skill levels. There will be a wide
variety of watercolor techniques that will be discussed and demonstrated including
positive and negative painting, composition, using creative colors, glazing, charging
color, and many more. We will begin each day with a demonstration painting that will be
finished before lunch. The daily demonstration will be different each day so that you will
see a wide variety of subject matter and styles including landscapes, floral, stylized, and
abstract. My preferred method of painting is to use large brushes for most of the painting
and complete the painting will a small amount of detail towards the end using smaller
brushes. The end result is a watercolor painting that is loose and fresh with expressive
brushwork. Following lunch each student will have the afternoon to work on their own
painting with assistance when needed. There are no requirements as to what subject the
student paints or what size they prefer to paint.
One of the main objectives that I have as a teacher is to go beyond merely
teaching watercolor technique. I make every effort to encourage the student to be creative
with design and color in their painting. All of the techniques that I teach work equally
well with either transparent or opaque watercolor. It’s what the student does with the
techniques that will truly distinguish the artist. The workshop will have a laid back and
sometimes humorous atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable to ask questions or
request assistance with their painting. Sometimes in the afternoon when everyone is
ready for a break I will do a small demonstration of a specific subject such as how to
paint clouds, trees, shadows on snow, etc. The afternoon demos are always very popular
at my workshops because they allow the student to focus on one or two specific subjects.
It will be a fun, educational, and inspiring workshop.
