Watercolor Energies & Composition
Monday – Friday, April 13 – 17, 2015
9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Do you love paint? Are you often found hovering over your easel, brush in hand, palette set with clear color, acres of previous papers trailing behind you while aiming to communicate with your unseen audience by means of marks on paper, mindful of difficulties, limitations, countless false starts and failures; yet, dedicated to producing work of higher significance? If you see yourself in this scenario, then consider joining me and other painters in this watercolor painting workshop. The single, most important focus will be pictorial design, which includes planning, color, tonal values, expression and visual theme. Demonstrations, personal instruction and objective criticism will sharpen your critical powers. Not only will you gain a better understanding of the painting process, but you will be confident in your new found skills. Bring along drawings, photos or old paintings to serve as your subjects. With your regular painting gear include a soft pencil and sketch paper to plan exciting designs before painting. If this is a new procedure for you, guidance will be available. Along with Science, Theology and Philosophy, Art is one of the four grand inquiries. Those bound together by art form some of life’s most significant associations. Expect to meet new friends. When returning from the workshop to the solitude of our own studios we will be recharged by that temporary collaboration with gallant peers. Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced.
