In this weekend workshop, participants will learn new and exciting ways to create interesting effects in watercolor painting. Michael will demonstrate unique ways to alter the wash and alternative tools to use that will help you paint beyond the restriction of the brush. By experimenting with methods before, during and after the wash is executed, artists will achieve spontaneity in their painting. The instructor will also demonstrate how to create an “Active Wash” that is used to manipulate “Lost and Found Edges” in a watercolor painting. Michael will encourage artists to dive in, set aside their fears and begin to paint without a lot of pre-planning. Students will learn new techniques that will give them the freedom to let go and allow the medium to do what it does best without having to control every outcome. Be sure to bring a notebook! There will be a plethora of step-by-step demonstrations that bring the fun back into painting. This class is designed for the beginner and experienced artist alike. Participants should bring photos or drawings to apply these techniques to make experimental watercolors from. Students are responsible for their own supplies and a supply list will be sent to registered students. Class size is limited to allow for personal attention
Saturday & Sunday May 5 & 6, 9am-4pm $225 (registration closes May 1)
