Today I'll be organizing my thoughts, lessons and my studio space for my two day workshop tomorrow and Sunday. Saturday morning we'll start with drawing techniques; gesture, blind contour and my six step pencil and wash technique.
In the afternoon I'll proceed with handouts to discuss the principles and elements of design. After doing a demo of basic technique applications, we'll do a watercolor with a limited palette so we can focus on the all important techniques of wet-in-wet watercolor. Focus will also be on the foundation of any painting - values. I will wait to discuss with the students how they would like to build on and expand these lessons so I know how to proceed on Sunday. One student has already said that she would like to learn how I paint my Sunflowers.
There is still a spot available for one or both days, so don't be shy give it a try!
