There seems to be a never-ending quest to loosen up in watercolor. To work toward that goal, it is imperative to have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish and then execute it quickly. In this workshop students will learn the tools and gain the confidence to mature their ability to loosen up their painting style. Andy will demonstrate how to use value studies from the outset to identify the large shapes in a scene. These large shapes provide the artist with opportunities for lost edges, which is essential if we are to take full advantage of the watercolor medium. Too often the found edges, or details, take over the painter’s thinking process, and the result is a tight watercolor. Students will move toward color paintings using value studies as our guide, and complete lessons together. Demonstration paintings will be done by Andy to reinforce each lesson.
