Have you ever found yourself sitting in front of a blank sheet of watercolor paper with reference photo in hand…wondering where to begin? A little preliminary planning can be a good place to start your journey, and in this workshop you’ll learn a step-by-step process for making those important initial design decisions.
Some of the topics we’ll explore include:
• How to identify and develop the concept for your painting
• The benefit of a strong value pattern & creating a value sketch
• Selecting colors for your painting
• Understanding the personality of your paints (watercolor characteristics)
With the planning completed, paint will begin to flow as we use a variety of techniques that best showcase the unique spirit of watercolor. Drawings and reference photos will be provided so that students can paint along with Susan as she demonstrates each step. As an option, students may supply their own reference material and paint the subject of their choice. Each year new demos are created to provide practical experience with various subjects and watercolor techniques.
Susan is a signature member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. She teaches workshops and exhibits her paintings at art festivals throughout the Southeast.
