Upcoming Live Watercolor Mastery Workshops

 

Unfortunately, due to Covid 19, all of our in person locational workshops have been temporarily changed to live virtual online events.

Be sure to make your reservation early for one of our live online events as limited space is available and the workshops tend to sell out fast.

"Starry Mountain Lake"

(10am to 2pm PT)

.
Capturing night scenes in watercolor poses a number of unique challenges for the watercolor artist. Because we are used to painting light to dark with one transparent layer over the next, which is the reverse of most other mediums, it becomes an awkward challenge to paint night scenes.  Unfortunately watercolor is not ideally suited for capturing night scenes, but there are some techniques I have developed over the years that can make it a little easier.
Here's just some of what we'll be covering in this upcoming Watercolor Mastery Workshop...

*The wet in wet technique that is best suited for night scenes.  
*How a limited palette unifies your painting and is only natural for night paintings.
*Color mixing with a limited palette.
*How to paint a dramatic abstract star filled galaxy and at the same time direct focus in your painting.
*Understanding how different degrees of wetness will create different painting effects.
*How selecting the right tools for the job will make or break your painting.
*Using the 3 paint consistencies, and how to balance the wetness in brush, paper, and pigment for predictable results.
*Drybrush techniques for water.
*How to create perfect variegated washes with every attempt.
*How to use photographs as inspiration more than reference.
*Bringing it all together - the keys to a cohesive painting.
*Artist Q&A session.
And so much more!

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 one day event is going to help you to make a quantum leap in your watercolor painting abilities!
This is definitely a Watercolor Mastery Workshop you will not want to miss.
