This interactive online workshop will begin with warm up exercises with color to paint loose and flowing watercolors, using flowers as our subject. We can focus on creating color and discovering design with flowers and nature to inspire us. I will provide some photos of flowers for your use, but please feel free to have your own favorites – photos -or even real flowers – always helpful!
We will then move into painting the portrait – discovering the use of color shifts to achieve translucent and glowing flesh tones. Experiencing an approach to the head will give us freedom to explore unexpected color and expression. We will focus of course on the features, flesh tones, hair, clothing & background in the portrait which will help us reach our goal of creating a painting that “breathes” – and using color changes to keep us excited by exploring our control of values for design impact. Students may use the photo or photos I will be working with or they can use their own. I will show you how to apply the watercolors, – both with application on dry paper and wet areas. We will also touch on figures too – in an expressive and gestural attitude!!!
The workshop will be recorded – (a wonderful reference for you and handy if you have to miss
any of the workshop)
