Professional Techniques, a two-day workshop with renowned watercolorist Tony Warren, strives to help students understand their current level of expertise, while also developing an improvement plan for advancing to the next level. This workshop is a continuation of Better Foundations. Day One: Applying Advanced Thinking focuses on critique, evaluation, and moving forward. Improvement plans will be developed and paintings re-executed as lessons from the previous workshop are implemented. Day Two: Being a Pro emphasizes foundational elements of artistic success used by professional artists, such as concept, drawing, composition, value relationships, color interpretation, technique, focal point, and presentation.
