Some familiarity with watercolors is recommended.
Beautiful landscapes are the quintessential goal of watercolorists. They may also be the greatest challenge. Too often our efforts become overworked, the detail too distracting, the cohesiveness lost. A wet paper approach can remedy many of these problems and lead to far lovelier paintings. So, if you are looking for dramatic, no-fail skies, unfussy, but effective middle grounds, compelling reinventions of ordinary photos, and fresh looking results all around, this workshop will definitely help. Practice is key, and practice we will. The technique takes some getting used to, the “tricks” are different (but magical!) so we will start with smaller sheets of paper and practice the distinct elements of this approach, learning to understand various degrees of wetness and their application, before moving on to a full painting.
A member of MAA for more than a decade, Carolyn is familiar to local watercolorists. A life-long painter, she discovered the joys of watercolor 35 years ago and has taught workshops in nearly all areas of traditional artistic endeavor from portraits to still life to land and waterscapes. She continues to challenge herself by studying the technique of favorite watercolorists and has had the privilege of taking workshops with some of the more notable American 21st century WC artists. She hosts classes in her studio and champions MAA’s Open Studio weekly.
