Color, as it is used in watercolor and as a tool for expression, will be the focus of this workshop.

Through individual mentoring, you will clarify your vision and intent by exploring how you see, interpret, think about, and layer color.

Re-imagine your chosen subject in fresh new ways and/or hone your skillset as it applies to your watercolor practice.

Your chosen subject could be a singular idea or any combination of figurative, abstract, floral, nature, landscape, or narrative subjects.

Choose from these two approaches: 

1. Work on a series and generate several smaller works that explore different variations and approaches to a theme.

2. Spend the week working on one painting on a full or half sheet and create accompanying research sketches to explore color choices and approaches.

You’ll learn the mechanics and technical aspects of working on a larger size paper.
Demonstrations will address layering sequences (both classical and unconventional), color placement, transparency, wet into wet and wash techniques.

Choose one subject to focus on for the full week and will reimagine it in fresh new ways and using a variety of watercolor techniques. References to contemporary and traditional watercolor artists are included.

Must have basic knowledge of watercolor.
