Expressive, Loose Watercolors

Members discount code at checkout: Workshop


Description

Flowers to Figures: Fresh, beautiful flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this dynamic workshop – progressing to the head and figure. Through a series of quick and fun drawing and painting exercises, students will develop a more loose and natural approach – giving all an opportunity to be more spontaneous and expressive in their paintings. In our approach to learning how to interpret the head and figure, we will learn to express translucent flesh tones, while focusing on the gesture of the person. Painting children will also be covered. We will work primarily from photos – (you can work from mine – which I will provide to you – ones I will demo plus extra that may interest you). Please feel free to bring your own photos also – ones that inspire you! Besides class demonstrations throughout the workshop, Janet will work individually with each person also, making sure they understand the painting concepts – a truly “hands on” experience. Focusing on discovering how to control and making dynamic color, design and expression, we will also have an optional “Show and Tell” – an opportunity to share and see how we exceed in our expectations!!! Supply list will be emailed to all participants.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT: “I LOVE THE QUALITIES OF WATERCOLOR – ITS FLUID NATURE. TO ME, THE INTERACTION OF ARTIST WITH THE MEDIUM IS LIKE A DANCE – FULL OF MOTION, FEELING AND EXPRESSION. I LOVE TO WATCH THE PAINTING DEVELOP AND TO DISCOVER NEW COLOR AND COMPOSITION. AS A TEACHER, I WOULD LIKE TO ENABLE STUDENTS TO FIND THEIR CONNECTIONS WITH WATERCOLOR IN A NEW AND EXPRESSIVE WAY.” JANET ROGERS,
