In a relaxed and non-competitive atmosphere, students will explore the subtlety and potential of the beautiful painting medium of watercolor with visiting instructor, Frederick Brosen.
Watercolor, with its luminosity and vibrancy, is the ideal medium for landscape and architectural subjects. This three-day workshop will introduce students to a classic transparent watercolor technique, first mastered by the great Early English artists such as Turner, Cotman and Bonington. Over an initial pencil drawing, students will learn how to apply several layers of glazed colors to create evocative landscapes.
