After drawing, the most important aspect of your watercolor is value and color. Come to this workshop and get an intensive learning experience in both subjects. We will learn the color wheel, how to mix colors using a limited number of colors, discover the beauty of "grays," and how to translate value into color. We will not be painting any subject matter in this workshop, so just bring your curiosity, desire to produce great art and the items on the materials list.
Tired of paying to have your watercolors matted, framed and put under "glass"? This demonstration will show you how you can avoid that cost and/or the frustration by mounting and protecting your watercolor, giving you a beautiful presentation for your work. As this is a process with time for drying, there will be no hands on work, but only demonstration. You will leave with written instructions and a supply list so you can try it at home.
Learn how to draw/paint eyes, human or animal from someone who knows eyes...an ophthalmologist (retired)! Come with your paints, your pencils and good photographs of eyes (your photos or cut from magazines). We will learn the anatomy, how to draw an eye, first with pencil, and then put some life into them with color. I will work in watercolor, but you can choose your medium. We will start with a lesson, then a demonstration and finally set to work to improve those faces. Without a beautiful and interesting eye, a portrait suffers. Bring your own painting or drawing equipment of your choice.
