This workshop will cover the basic principles of landscape painting in the watercolor medium, and will be geared especially to the beginning and intermediate painter. Students will learn glazing techniques, use of color, composition, the importance of value and creating texture through the use of dry brush technique. Painting light and shadow will be introduced and some drawing experience is recommended. A critique and class discussion will be held at the end of the session.
NOTE: Tuition includes a $25 one-time registration fee. If you have already paid the fee, it will be deducted from your total before your card is charged.
Robert O’Brien has been painting in the watercolor medium for over 45 years. He is a full-time artist and instructor living in Vermont. In his own words “I am drawn to mundane, ordinary, sometimes “tired” subjects that I find in abundance around where I live. Light and shadow play an important role in my creative process. I am more interested in value than color. I love to paint the spare, “colorless” world of winter in Vermont”. Some of his recent paintings have emphasized close focus aspects of a particular subject giving the piece an abstract appearance. His subjects range from crumbling landscape to flowers and more recently portraits. Robert conducts watercolor workshops locally, throughout the U.S. and abroad. He has visited France many times and while there he teaches and paints “en plein air”.
A supply list will be sent with confirmation of class registration.
