WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

"Seeing the Light" Watercolor Workshop The focus of this workshop will be seeing, understanding and CAPTURING SUNLIGHT, SHADE AND SHADOW. We will also explore the BASIC CONTROLS OF ABSTRACT DESIGN AND THE INVENTIVE USE OF COLOR since more paintings suffer from lack of design and color organization than from an inadequate description of the subject. Techniques for Sketching, Drawing and completing Painting Studies as well as the use of the Grid to enlarge these to painting size will be demonstrated. We will also work with THE CAMERA AND THE PHOTOGRAPH AS A SECOND SKETCHBOOK and to learn to create with it rather than "copy the photograph". If time permits we will work with drawing the figure and capturing individual body language. The bulk of the class time will be spent experimenting with hands-on-painting problems. Previous sketches, old or new paintings, photos taken by the artist, memory or invention can be the source of subject matter. Attention will be given to the DEVELOPMENT OF A PERSONAL PAINTING STYLE. Beginners welcome. Advance students will be given individual challenges.
