Traditionally, watercolor is a light-to-dark medium. Light washes are built up gradually in order toachieve rich tones. The focus of this course is to explain that when beginning a painting with theapplication of pre-mixed, middle value, transparent wet-on-wet watercolor washes, artists cancreate images that exude “instant” atmosphere, mood and depth. This workshop is designed to enhance both creative and technical skills. We will meet for two consecutive Saturday mornings as a group. During the classroom meetings the instructor will present a PowerPoint slide show of her work and specific step-by-step process,discuss how to breakdown and delineate values, effectively use masking fluid to save highlights, and utilize cups for paint mixing to effectively “pour” paint.
Throughout the following week, the instructor will meet with students online during non-class time on a one-to-one basis (at pre-determined times) for review and critique of their work inprogress. Students may also send works in-progress to the instructor as JPEGs for additional e-mail review and comments. The second Saturday class-time session will be utilized for a group critique of the paintingscreated, as well as an additional demonstration and a PowerPoint presentation on subjectsrelated to wet-on-wet watercolor.
