I am about to hold another watermedia landscape workshop through Chinook Learning Services from Sept 20-22, 10 to 3pm each day (Thurs-Sat). These paintings are my demonstration paintings from the workshop I held in the spring, and never had a chance to post. We will be covering watercolour, gouache and acrylic in the class, using your choice of photo reference. Focus will be on puddling of colour for vibrant effects as well as edge control, composition and simplifying reference material to make sure your viewers will see what you intended them to see in the work.
This was a demonstration in fluid acrylics and how they are actually superior to watercolours IMHO! Some advantages are: you can layer and glaze without making mud, the colour remains vibrant even when dry, you can use opaque and translucent passages to make the surface dynamic, and you can frame them like an oil painting without glass. The only disadvantage that I can think of is that you can't lift them when they are dry, but heck, you can always go in with opaque media!
So if you are interested in learning how to paint glorious paintings in watermedia, you can find out more information and register online here. Please note the low price of $295!!!
