Workshop Description (from Ken)

Students,

Hello everyone! I am very much looking forward to our workshop this year. I hope you all are too. I will be giving a demonstration each day. On day 1 you can bring something of your own to paint, regardless of the subject matter. It can be landscapes, flowers, people, etc. This will give me a chance to see at what level each of you are in regards to watercolor painting. No matter where you are at present, we will have fun and hopefully, I can teach you a few things.

On day 2 we will all be painting from the same reference photos supplied by myself, of people of course! You should be getting the photos by e-mail about 2 weeks before.

For days 3 and 4, we will have a class assignment. I will be supplying 3 separate photos of figures and 3 separate photo references of backgrounds. Your job will be to take a figure and combine with one of the backgrounds to design a large scale painting. I will demonstrate my process and thought pattern on how to put together multiple photos into a finished painting. On day 4 I will do a color demo of my design. You will have 2 days to finish the assignment.

On the final day, we will have a free day to paint and practice whatever subject matter of people or figures of your choosing.

Please bring several samples of previous work to show. I will be available at times for a more personal review of your work.
