Moving To Mastery
Skillful technique combined with conscious design results in dynamic work.
This four-day intensive is focused on developing advanced painting skills.
Increasing the accomplishment of your work requires learning the language of objective criticism. We’ll learn this skill beginning on day one. We’ll use this language for the entire four days as we delve into new, advanced techniques and the practice of conscious design
On the second day, we’ll learn some advanced watercolor techniques while we focus on edges and textures. Both are important in developing masterful work.
The third day focuses on making good design choices at the start, picking from various choices on the design menu.
By the forth day, you’ll be learning to “depart from the literal” in order to make composition decisions that support your vision rather than slavishly copying a photo or a scene.
We’ll start at 9am and end sometime between 4 and 4:30 each day. The day will begin with some conversation and exercises and end with a review of the days work.
In order to make the most of our 4 days of work, there will be pre-workshop assignments to complete.
Workshop size is limited to 8 students.
