Watercolor Mastery Workshop

"Path to Leffingwell"
June 3rd & 4th, 2023
(10am to 2 - 1:30pm PT)



The watercolor painting opportunities that California's central coast provide are too numerous to count, but in the small coastal community of Cambria they are epic! Our upcoming June 3rd & 4th workshop "Path to Leffingwell" is a prime example!
The area in and around California's central coast has it's own very unique landscape, with features that set it apart from anywhere else on earth. A short drive along highway 1 will reveal to you many inspired watercolor painting opportunities. You can't help but discover that there is beautiful scenery that begs to be painted around each and every corner! 
This month's Watercolor Mastery Workshop subject is taken from Cambria California's shoreline, and it is one of those perfect paintable scenes that many people miss.
In this Watercolor Mastery Workshop "Path to Leffingwell" I'll be sharing with you some of the techniques that I use to take what seems like a very complicated subject, that includes sea, sky, a rocky shoreline, and a landscape foreground, and break it all down into a simple & easy to follow steps. A process that you'll be able to use with every one of your future landscape paintings.
This is a workshop for artists of all skill levels.
Here's just some of what we'll be covering in this upcoming Watercolor Mastery Workshop "Path to Leffingwell"...
*How to turn reference photographs into a beautiful watercolor paintings.
*Arranging a compelling landscape composition.
*How to paint a convincing sea and shoreline.
*How to paint distant trees.
*How to use color and value to portray depth and distance.
*How to bring unity and harmony to your painting.
*Incorporating a wide range of values into your paintings and why it's important.
*How to simplify a watercolor painting with suggestion instead of details.
*How to direct focus in a landscape painting with a compelling composition.
*How to use "planes" in your landscape paintings to identify value placement.
*Artist Q&A session.

And so much more!
Then, we will apply everything we learn to a guided step-by-step demonstration of the painting shown above. As we go from step to step, we'll discuss the techniques and concepts we learned and how they directly relate to this painting. Since this will be a live, interactive, step-by-step, hands on experience, you'll have the opportunity to ask questions in real time and have them answered by the artist.
This two day event is going to help you to make a quantum leap in your watercolor painting abilities!
This is definitely a watercolor workshop you will not want to miss.
