Watercolor Workshop (Ages 16+)

Watercolor Workshop (Ages 16+)

In this workshop, intended for beginning and intermediate watercolor artists, students will learn overall concepts for watercolors, the eight steps needed for design, basic and intermediate techniques, and complete a painting of their choice. Instructor James Beech will work closely with beginners to explain, solve problems, and answer questions. At the end of the day there will be a group critique of attendee’s work. James will also give additional information such as good reference books; brushes, pallet, paints; gridding washes, blooms or cauliflowers; color wheel, grays, and values; light direction demo with a model; mingling, layering, lifting, and mud; razor blades, credit cards, sponges, pouring, and spraying.

Students should bring all materials ready to paint and professional quality paints, paper, and brushes are suggested. Intermediate students may bring a recent painting they are working on and need help in completing. Please also bring a reference photo to start a new painting. If possible, it is suggested that students bring a new painting sketch already drawn on paper ready to paint.
