Workshop Description (from the instructor)
Watercolor Loose and Fast
Turn your old notions of watercolor upside down. Explore numerous techniques in watercolor painting such as wet onto wet painting, charging color, intentional water blossoms, scraping, spattering, and adding texture to your paintings. The workshop will be a learning experience with demonstrations, one-on-one consultations, and constructive critiques. All levels of students are encouraged to participate. Students are welcome to bring their own photographs or use the instructor’s photographic resources.
Students will complete several quarter-sheet (11x15”) paintings during each session.
Students can work from their own photographs or use samples provided by the instructor.
