This Watercolor Workshop is designed to deepen our understanding of the craft of Watercolor Painting. An individual technique is a function of ones personal aesthetic. Using Watercolor within that context produces work that is
expressive and authentic to the individual. This is our goal
for the class.

OIL PAINTING WORKSHOP
May 4-7, 2017
In the beginning, a landscape painting is an inventory of stuff: a sky, a mountain, some trees, etc. With experience the objects recede in importance, and what emerges in replacement are color/value relationships. The tree becomes a piece of color/value with specific relationships to the other pieces of the landscape. Your tree has a greater reality as a piece of color and value than it ever will as a tree. Understand this and move ahead.
This class will focus on creating a light effect. The goal for the workshop is to bring your understanding to a more abstract level.
This class is open to artists of all levels. Watercolorists are welcome. Class Demonstrations are in oil.
