Enjoy Watercolor & Learn the Steps to Exciting Plein Air Watercolors at a Watercolor Workshop
with Richard Burke Jones
Simplify the Outdoor Experience and Reduce the Sometimes frustrating Results by following the steps to a Successful Painting! This hands-on workshop will go through the step-by-step process starting at the thumbnail sketch, the pencil drawing, the first washes, and the final strokes to completion.
We will go over the way to ‘see’ the composition in the landscape shapes and how the experience of painting outdoors can produce a special work of art. We will examine the skill of letting the watercolor ‘paint itself’ from top to bottom. We will concentrate on clean, fresh strokes and paint the ‘essence’ of the scene with neutrals and color that ‘works’. We will go over the introduction of moving figures in the scene and simplifying people into shapes that convince. Limited to 10.
