Timothy J. Clark
Figure Painting in Watercolor
The Next Step
Monday – Friday, 8:45 am – 12:30 pm
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 14 students
This workshop is designed for watercolor painters with experience. The workshop emphasizes painting the figure from life, with a special focus on transitioning toward larger scale paintings. In addition to creating spirited small studies, each student also has the space, opportunity and guidance to create one large watercolor while working from the model. Techniques for controlling the surface, mixing sufficient amounts of paint, preparing a large scale layout, and estimating drying color shifts are also covered. Oversize board and paper are provided.
