Watercolor Line and Wash for Intermediate students
When: Sunday, June 25, 2023 from 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm
Overview. This class is for intermediate to advanced watercolor students. Line and wash is a watercolor technique that combines a line drawing with a watercolor painting. Students will learn how to combine watercolor and ink to create a painting. More traditional paintings can be created as well as urban sketching style paintings. This technique has been used for centuries to create paintings.
Plein Air Workshop for beginners to intermediate
When: Saturday, May 27, 2023, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Overview. In this four-hour workshop, students will experience the challenge and rewards of painting outside, from finding a likely scene to paint, figuring out the focal point of the scene, sketching rapidly the scene’s big shapes and values, transferring the sketch onto watercolor paper, readying your equipment, and then painting. David will begin the workshop with a demonstration and then invite the class to spend the rest of their time painting. He will provide personal assistance throughout the workshop. The workshop will conclude with a constructive critique of the group’s efforts.
