“Watercolor Unleashed – Wet & Wild – ZOOM WORKSHOP”
This will be an online Zoom class. Paint from the comfort of your own studio.
Dates/Time: July 12-15, 2021, Monday-Thursday, 9AM-3:30PM.
Note: included is a Demonstration , via Zoom, by Julie Gilbert Pollard, Workshop Instructor, on Sunday afternoon, June 13, 2021, of about 75 minutes beginning about 2:00PM. The demo is a part of the SDWS monthly General Meeting, which begins at 1:30PM. Workshop participants are welcome.
Class Description: Learn how to make water look wet, reflective and splashy! With stunning waves, waterfalls or intimate woodsy creeks as your model, study water in motion and glassy reflection. Painting water that looks wet requires some basic knowledge of the dynamics of how water moves and how objects are reflected in its mirror surface. In addition to traditional watercolor methods, learn to use “acrylic underpinnings” to set the stage for vibrant colors in your “waterscape” paintings. Techniques will be demonstrated to address the various puzzles with which the artist is faced when painting this stunning, fascinating and challenging subject!
Reference photos will be supplied, or you may use your own.
Lessons will focus on:
- Cascading, splashing water
- Negative painting exercises for the watercolorist
- “Acrylic Underpinnings” for both watercolor and acrylic Note: the small amount of fluid acrylic necessary for this technique will be supplied.
- Color theory, simplified – “using color as value”
There will be demos, instruction at all levels, critique and lots of painting time. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting!
