What landscape is nearest and dearest to your heart? This two-day workshop is an opportunity to express that treasured place for future generations by creating a watercolor landscape painting that will be a lasting family legacy. Instructor demos and guided exercises with watercolorist Tara Sweeney introduce you to a three-layer, limited palette approach to watercolor from a photo reference of choice. Using the structure of light and shadow and the illusion of depth to simplify shapes and values for figures and landscape elements you’ll explore the hallmarks of watercolor: glowing color; wet-into-wet mingling; transparent layering; intentional lost and found edges; and lively brushwork. Discussions will be informed by inspiration from the instructor, ASI collection, and the exhibition of Swedish-American artist Birger Sandzén’s landscapes.
This class welcomes all experience levels ages 18 and up and requires students to provide their own tools; please see materials list.
