Workshops: a great way to bring focus down to specifics!
Light: Sun-drenched Painting TBA
Build light into your paintings by preserving white spaces and recovering white accents. Basic drawing tutorial* Learn to when and where to "design" whites into your painting for added punch and to move the eye around your composition.
Required:Regular WC kit. In addition, white designer gouache, Pebeo masking fluid, and rubber mask pickup (use masking fluid you have, but if it is more than a year old – replace it! Buy small bottles if you don’t use a lot, better to replace more frequently). Also bring vine charcoal (not wrapped pencils) and sketch paper (newsprint is fine).
Waterlogue™- from image to painting TBA
Learn an easy way to abstract your photographs, print, then apply the inspiration to build a painting using a downloadable smartphone app. Not necessary to purchase your own, but recommended. Will also combine elements of the above “Color” and “Light” workshops.
Required:ability to expose images, view on a screen for image selection, and then email those photographs to me!If you choose to invest in your own version of the app, there will still be tutorial time to learn how to use it with your own phone. App is free, and compatible with handheld Apple products such as iPhone, iPad... Oh, and all of your regular watercolor kit!
