Watercolor Rhythms with Faces & Figures
Third Session – All Levels
This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants of all levels to quickly gain confidence in approaching the portrait and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way. Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, show and tell, and a series of fun exercises, will weave into class painting time. Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject. Many “features” will be covered! Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s and also from live models. Janet will also focus on achieving quick gesture paintings from photos and the model – having fun with letting the watercolor form the gestures in a fun and fluid manner.
Class goals will be to see in new ways – bringing life and interpretation to the portrait and figure, and to discover intuitive color and design. All levels will benefit and help is available to those who are new to the portrait and figure. No Fear!!
