Watercolor: details in nature
Capture what you see; translate what you feel, all via the fluid medium of watercolor. Learn to simplify and abstract subject matter with minimal marks and a broad spectrum of techniques to create bold and captivating works on paper. Develop color palettes and imagery to stretch your preconceived notions of these elements and their initial meaning. This workshop guides students through how inspiration translates observations into graphic and bold watercolors. Students learn how to economize their mark-making and focus on elements like pattern and color through watercolor, observing details in nature with a fresh perspective.
