This workshop will focus on the many moods and facets of painting water in the watercolor medium. Students will learn techniques from rendering a simple reflective pond to a swift moving mountain stream and everything in between. Foreshortening and the ability to suggest a flat plane will be taught when painting a meandering river or a lake. Water provides the artist with an endless variety of interpretations given its reflective qualities as well as its restlessness. The class will start with a demonstration by the instructor followed by class painting. A critique will be offered at the end of the session. Reference photos will be provided and students are encouraged to bring their own as well. Bring a lunch or plan to dine at the Museums’ Blake House Café. For all levels. Supply list provided.
