    Understanding and using color theory will add a new dimension to your work. In this exciting workshop you will learn about the color wheel and how it relates to your chosen medium of choice. On the first day of the workshop there will be a lecture period followed by a series of color exercises. Through mixing, you will learn how to control the three components of color: value, temperature and intensity. We will also discuss color schemes and their use in painting. Day two will be spent painting several small works putting principle to practice. Students should have some working knowledge of materials.

    Learn to paint portraits in watercolor in a spontaneous style that involves minimal layering and the use of transparent colors. Painting portraits in watercolor can seem like a daunting task, but many of us can't resist the urge to try it. It's so easy to "tighten up" our portrait paintings because of our focus on "getting it right". In this two day workshop we will focus on loosening up the portrait painting process and learning strategies for creating a successful portrait. We will be working from partially pre-drawn portraits (furnished by the instructor), so that we can focus on the painting process. Samples of the paints that are highlighted in the workshop will be provided. This workshop will be a combination of demo and hands-on portrait work.

    All Levels, as long as they have some basic experience with watercolor.

    The purpose of this workshop is to expand your creative vocabulary. There are so many techniques, materials and choices to make that we often fall back on the familiar and remain in our comfort zone. Welcome to the world of mixed media where failure is not an option!


    Pack up your Gel Medium and come along on an artistic journey. Join me in exploring new techniques with aqueous mediums. Play with the abstraction of known images, such as still life and figures. Follow along your same artistic path and allow me to show you how to enhance what you already do. Better yet, experiment with techniques that you have never experienced before and enjoy a new form of expression. 


    You’ll be amazed at what you can do with a little collage and some imagination.
