Alla Prima Watercolors with Flowers

Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this workshop.  Janet will demonstrate various “fun” exercises geared to interpret flowers in a loose and expressive manner.  Discovering the unique “nature” of individual flowers and “finding” new colors will be highlighted.  Demonstrations and individual help will weave throughout these two days, with an emphasis on letting the medium of watercolor lead the students to new adventures in watercolor.  (PLEIN AIR – in studio!)

Some goals include “keeping the whites”, avoiding “mud”, intuitive color and composition. We may touch on an approach to landscape also ….

Artists may bring in some of their current work for Janet to critique if they desire.

$5 suggested donation for live flowers due to instuctor.

Alla Prima Watercolor with Faces and Figures


This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants to quickly gain confidence in approaching the portrait and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way.

Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, (which will include drawing, color and paint application) will weave into class painting time.  Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject.  Many “features” will be covered, including an approach to children’s portraits.

Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s and also the opportunity to paint in a gestural and intuitive manner from the live model for ½ of the last day.

Our goals will be to “see” in new ways -- bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure, and to discover intuitive color and design.  

$5 model fee due to instructor.
