Expressive Watercolors: From Flowers to Landscapes
February 15, 16 & 17, 2024
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
3-Day Workshop $475
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. 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 white paper”, avoiding “mud”,
intuitive color and composition. Besides working with students individually and class demos, all
will enjoy “Show and Tell” – and opportunity to see class work together and enjoy! We will also
explore an approach to landscape. – Students can bring some of their favorites – I will also
supply a photo and drawing of a demo I will do that some can trace if they wish.
