The focus of this workshop is best summed up by a quote from Edgar Degas, “Art is not what you see but what you make others see.” This workshop is designed to help you take your painting beyond the basics and to use various watercolor techniques to develop powerful expressive paintings while developing your own individual style. The instructor has over 40 years of teaching experience and places a strong emphasis on design, contrast, composition and the sense of an emotional story or mood. The instructor will introduce students to many processes, including the saturated paper process, resist with washes, value under painting and other techniques. The exercises will strengthen students’ compositional skills, wherever they are in the painting process. This workshop will work for any beginning or advanced level painter. Space is limited – so sign up early! Supply lists and information will be sent after registration.
