1 day

Tuesday, 10:00am - 4:00pm 

All skill levels, Watercolor (watercolor, gouache & india ink)

February 6, 2018

SUPPLY LIST


Usually you begin your painting by applying the paint onto your paper and the paper is ready to receive what you create. But what would your painting look like if the paper itself determines how your finished piece appears? This workshop will show you how to use Canson Mi-Teintes colored drawing paper as your base for a watercolor and ink painting that will look unlike any other watercolor painting you have done before! A full range of colored papers will be available at the workshop. You will select the color that best enhances your subject (photo references and live floral/plant setups will be provided- or you may certainly bring your own).

1 day

Thursday, 10:00am - 4:00pm

All skill levels, Acrylic or Watercolor

March 22, 2018

SUPPLY LIST

 

Flowers? Same old? Again? NOPE! These beautiful grand scaled beauties will stop you in your tracks. Starting with fresh Floral/Plant specimens or a provided photo reference (or bring your own favorite) you will be working on a large all-over floral painting that may even veer to the abstract. Working in either acrylic or watercolor, you will be shown step-by-step how to start, produce and complete a stunning finished piece. Pre-painted sequential examples will be provided as well as in class demonstrations. By working extra large a mundane subject becomes a true artistic statement. Guided suggestions will be offered if you even want to modify the subject into a more abstract look. Whether realistic, impressionistic or abstract you will take home the most satisfying floral you ever painted!
