Michael Reardon - Watercolor Techniques Session I

Michael Reardon - Watercolor Techniques Session I

Michael Reardon - Watercolor Techniques, July 21-22, 2 Days, Advanced Beginner & Up

 

 

California native Michael Reardon is a signature member of AWS, NWS, Watercolor West, and our own CWA. He is also an avid plein air artist who has been painting in watercolor for over 25 years.  Throughout his travels, he has refined his techniques, creating plein air paintings as he goes. Trained as an architect at UC Berkeley, he was an architectural illustrator for over 30 years. Michael and his work have been featured in numerous articles over the last few years, including Watercolor Artist, Watercolor, Plein Air, and the Art of Watercolour.

In this workshop, Michael will share information from his latest book, Watercolor Techniques, which hit the shelves this past spring.  In this workshop he will share some of his insights into painting and how to enjoy it. Through demonstrations and hands-on painting, Michael will show ways to simplify and create dynamic compositions, work quickly and decisively, and capture the essence of a scene convincingly. He will cover the use of a limited palette, dynamic color mixing, and the use of light and value to describe form.

Workshop location is east of San Francisco, on the Walnut Creek/Concord border, at Cal State East Bay. Details.

Janet Rogers - Expressive Watercolors: Flowers, Faces and Figures, October 16-19, 4 days, Advanced Beginner & Up

   

Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this dynamic workshop – progressing to faces and figures.  Through a series of “fun” painting exercises, students will develop a more loose and natural approach – giving them an opportunity to be more spontaneous and expressive in their paintings.  We will move into painting people, learning how to express translucent flesh tones, while focusing on the gesture of the person.  Painting children will also be covered as well as an approach to quickly interpret the figure.   Although we will be working primarily with photographs, we may have a chance to work from a model….so bring your camera!

Some students may want to paint just figures or just flowers, although the demonstrations and instruction are geared to beginning with flowers and ending with faces and figures.

Workshop location is east of San Francisco, on the Walnut Creek/Concord border, at Cal State East Bay. Details.
