This 2-day watercolor workshop explores the compositional potential of flowers, branches and leaves from nature, and the technical approach to painting with watercolors in a representational style.
Students are expected to bring a small selection of desired flowers and plants (from nature) of their choice to be painted (homegrown varieties can be particularly interesting for their unexpected forms and characteristics). The lectures and demonstrations will focus on materials, techniques, and designs within the painting process from observation—incorporating featured natural elements with compositional strategies.
This workshop is balanced for both beginning and intermediate watercolor students. Beginners will be introduced to the medium of watercolor and will develop a fundamental understanding in its use, while more advanced students will incorporate discussion of ideas and techniques to lead to new possibilities. Individual assistance will be given throughout the course to meet every student’s need, and the workshop will end with an informal group critique on finished paintings.
