Description

There seems to be a never-ending quest to loosen up in watercolor. I hear it from my students all the time. It's easy to fall into the trap of putting too much into your paintings -- being able to edit out the non-essential, whether working from photo reference or painting on location, is so important.

Painting loosely doesn't just 'happen' -- it comes from gaining a comfort level with your skills and materials over time. However, there are techniques that can speed up this process. My workshop will focus on using value studies from the outset to identify the large shapes in a scene. These large shapes provide the artist with opportunities for lost edges when painting in watercolor, which is essential if we are to take full advantage of the medium. Too often the 'found edges,' or details, take over the painter's thinking process, and the result is a tight watercolor. We will move on toward color paintings with a lot of individual help, and complete a color painting lesson together. Demonstration paintings will be done by Andy every day to reinforce the day’s lessons. In order to loosen up it is imperative to have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish with your painting and then execute it quickly. This class will give you the tools and confidence to do just that.
