March Watercolor And Drawing Workshop

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!
