Michael Reardon – Watercolors Techniques
September 19-21, 2022 (3 Days), 9 AM – 4 PM, Hours of Instruction: 20
Advanced Beginner to Advanced
In this workshop you will work on techniques to strengthen your skills in watercolor landscape painting. Fundamentals covered will include: creating a strong composition, evoking a sense of light through the use of values; and manipulating color for its full expressive effect. While Michael will demonstrate his painting style and the use of colors in his palette, he will encourage participants to develop their personal style and approach to watercolor.
A demonstration will start each day, followed by individual painting with careful guidance. A review of the day’s work concludes each day. You will also explore ways to work with photo references so that they help, not dictate, your final painting.
All levels are welcome. Some experience with watercolor recommended.
