"Watercolor Impressions - Flowers and Landscape - Online Session I"
March 8-10, 2021
 

We will explore the colors, fragility, and movement of flowers in order to paint them in a loose, expressive manner. We will then move into an approach of the landscape - allowing the watercolor to interpret the mood and feeling of us. This is an online workshop, which will enable us to still interact and enable us to see up close - the painting process, design and colors. You will also receive a recorded version of this.

"Expressive Watercolors - The Head and Figure"

This interactive virtual workshop will focus on interpreting the head and figure in a spontaneous and intuitive manner. We will focus on translucent flesh tones, features, values, color, hair background, clothing, etc. Since we can interact, I will be able to answer your questions, as I paint (a visual like looking over my shoulder - to see brush strokes and palette). I will send photos of portraits together with drawings that you can trace - or use your own! Also will send a few figure photos to interpret gesturally. A recording of the workshop will be sent everyday to attendees (in case you have to miss something). 6 1/2 hours from 9:30am EST with lunch and painting breaks. Enrollment limited.
