What is this workshop all about?
Designed for artists of all skill levels.
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 the “Starry Mountain Lake” 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.
