In conjunction with “High Point: the horses, wildlife, and landscape of Colorado” showing at the Commonwheel Artist Coop August 21st- September 13th, 2015, I will present a Poured Watercolor workshop. The workshop will take place September 12th & 13th, 2015 at the Manitou Art Center, 513 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs, CO 80829. Hours for the workshop are 10 am – 4 pm each day.
Knowing pigment properties and following simple pigment rules go a long way in achieving colors that glow. Pouring paints, instead of using a brush, further ensures that each layer remains undisturbed, allowing a build-up of color that provides depth to paintings. The workshop will cover strategies for strengthening your compositions, pigment rules, and pouring techniques. Strategies include focusing on value, edges, and of course, color! Each participant will complete 1-2 watercolor pieces. Cost for the workshop is $85 for MAC and Commonwheel Artists Co-op members/ $105 for non-members. Each participant will receive a 12-page reference workbook. For more information and to register, please visit: commonwheel.com/isgreen.html
