Watercolor - Line and Wash Workshop
10:00 - 3:00
Spend a relaxing day learning a different art technique in my in home studio.
Open to any level. This is a small group so there is lots of individual attention.
Watercolor, using the line and wash technique, is used by many artists to record scenes in sketch books, often while travelling.
While many illustrations, such as the books by Beatrix Potter, use line and wash, it can also be used for creating beautiful fine art.
I've been using this method for years to create my "little houses" series of paintings. Many can be seen here.
To demonstrate the many ways you can use line and wash we will do a couple of exercises to get you warmed up then finish with a traditional Newfoundland scene . Using a reference photo, I'll take you through the steps from a thumbnail sketch, pen and ink drawing to a finished watercolor and show you some ways to "rescue" a failed watercolor. I have plenty of reference photos but if you have one of a scene you'd like to try, bring it along.
I'll provide all the materials but if you are more comfortable using your own paints and brushes, bring them.
Two soups, tortilla chicken soup and lentil soup are on the menu for lunch but you can bring your own if you like. Tea and coffee available all day.
If you have any questions you can e-mail me or call at 743-6201.
