"Bird Reflections Three Day Workshop"
May 4-6, 2023

Water reflections can be fascinating. The water can act like glass and give an almost perfect reflection of the object or distort the objects due to movement of the surface. This workshop will focus on a bird and its reflection in the water. Students will learn methods to create the puzzle-like reflections in the water by using masking, layering, and wet-on-wet techniques. Next the subject of the reflection, the bird, will be explored as students learn techniques for creating a realistic likeness of the bird. The fundamentals of watercolor and the application of design principals will be discussed and demonstrated so that each student will have the tools to complete their own successful painting.
Location: Fairhope, Alabama
Instructor: Lorraine Watry
Cost: $400 (members), $440 (non-members)
Sponsor: Watercolor Society of Alabama
