SESSION I – 

“WATERCOLOR IMPRESSIONS - FLOWERS TO LANDSCAPE"

Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this workshop.  Janet will demonstrate various “fun” exercises geared to interpret flowers in a loose and expressive manner.  Discovering the unique “nature” of individual flowers and “finding” new colors will be highlighted.  We will also explore how to interpret the landscape from photos in an impressionistic style.

 

Demonstrations and individual help will weave throughout the workshop, with an emphasis on letting the medium of watercolor lead the students to new adventures in watercolor.  (PLEIN AIR – in studio!)

Some goals include “keeping the whites”, avoiding “mud”, intuitive color and composition.

 

Besides working with students individually and class demos, Janet and attendees  will enjoy “Show and Tell” – and opportunity to see class work together and enjoy!

ALL LEVELS WELCOME     

SESSION II –

“WATERCOLOR IMPRESSIONS - THE HEAD & FIGURE”

 

This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants to quickly gain confidence in approaching the portrait and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way.

 

Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, (which will include drawing, color and paint application) will weave into class painting time.  Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject.  Many “features” will be covered, including an approach to children’s portraits.  No fear in this workshop – drawing help is available – no matter what level.

 

Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s and also the opportunity to paint in a gestural and intuitive manner from the live model for ½ of the last day.

Our goals will be to “see” in new ways -- bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure, and to discover intuitive color and design.
