Description

Registration opens January 15

In this three-day studio workshop, students will explore the subject of water. Each morning will feature a presentation, full demo, and exercises for students focusing on value & composition. Afternoons will be devoted to one-on-one instruction. Points of study will include:

  • Seeing as an artist: seeing shapes, value shifts, and color temperatures
  • Planning your painting: envisioning your painting, using varied reference material, honing value and design, doing color studies
  • Interpreting water: creating a sense of translucency, painting reflections on the surface of still water, painting water in motion (waterfalls and surf), plus some tricks for painting water out-of-doors, and getting good reference for studio use
  • Stages of studio painting: drawing, block-in, color mixing, approaches to working a larger painting, refining texture & edges, tools for self-critique
  • Experimentation: exercises you can do at home to continue your growth as an artist

One-on-one instruction will be individually tailored. Students are encouraged to email several waterscape painting examples beforehand and list some specific things they would like to work on. Attendance fee includes a 40-page workshop handbook for further study.

Supply list can be found at the tab at the top of the page.
