1-Day Workshop $225
Have you ever wished your watercolor paintings could be more COLORFUL? LOOSER? More EXPRESSIVE? More EXCITING? More FUN? Join Ellen Negley for an intensive one-day watercolor workshop where she will discuss the tools she uses, explain the difference between value and color, demonstrate how to get colors mixing on the paper, discuss composition and most importantly… help make watercolor painting fun! You’ll be surrounded by like-minded people, and you might just go home with new friends. Students are encouraged to bring a lunch!
Some watercolor experience is preferred.
About the Instructor:
My name is Ellen Negley and I was born and raised in Peoria, Illinois but now I live in Lake Worth, Florida. For me, watercolor is the perfect medium although I will agree at times it can be frustrating and very unforgiving. It’s elusive, unpredictable and has a mind of its own. One minute the colors are bold and electric and the next they’re delicate and transparent. Every time I step up to a blank piece of paper, I feel a rush of adrenaline, like stepping off a cliff and not knowing exactly where I’ll land. Maybe it’s that ever-present challenge that keeps me coming back for more. There is always more to learn.
Currently I participate in eight to ten art shows a year throughout Florida. It’s a great way to get feedback on my paintings and I enjoy talking to people about my painting process. I also teach several workshops a year and it feels very gratifying to help others explore the amazing world of watercolor painting.
