"Portraits in Watercolor"
June 3-7, 2019
 

Though often viewed as intimidating and challenging, painting the figure can be just as approachable as a still life and landscape, and brings with its accomplishment a unique satisfaction and reward. Ted will discuss the pitfalls and pluses of painting from photographic reference as well as how to achieve spontaneity, character, and life in your paintings. Class will include daily demonstrations and one-on-one interaction with class members. As Ted shares the specific techniques he uses to bring excitement to his figurative work, you will find your paintings taking on a new life. And, experience great fun in the process! Ted Nuttall is a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society, the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and Watercolor West.
