Large-Scale Still Life in Watercolor
October 29-November 2
Monday – Friday
9:00 am – 12:30 pm
Enrollment limited to 10 students
Students will explore the process of turning perceptual observation into images. Formal concepts such as composition, space, form, color temperature and color intensity will be addressed, while maintaining an appreciation for the immediacy of the medium. Starting with small tonal studies, students will work up to making several 22 x 30-inch watercolors from the still life. The emphasis will be on direct observation and "getting it right," in order to make expressive, ambitious watercolors. This workshop is open to all levels, although some experience in watercolor or drawing will be helpful.
