ABOUT THIS CLASS:
Learn to paint the dogwood tree and incorporate it into realistic watercolor landscapes. Using both wet-in-wet technique and detailed dry brush, Alan Shuptrine will teach how to literally “sculpt” a floral subject into a painting from back to front, and utilize the white of the paper to create dramatic light and shadow. Unlike most watercolorists who gradually add pigment to paper (from light-to-dark), Alan Shuptrine was influenced by Andrew Wyeth, and his father, Hubert Shuptrine, who painted from dark-to-light, much like an oil painter. This allows for bolder brushstrokes, spontaneity, and a fresher look. For those who have ever been intimidated by watercolor, Alan will help build confidence as students develop their paintings. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to have personal one-on-one instruction from a nationally recognized watercolor realist. Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced.
