Frank shares watercolor techniques for creating balance and unity in your work. Time sensitive and challenging wet-on- wet and dry-on-wet approaches as well as composition will be addressed. There will be discussion and demonstration on composition as well as the 'state of mind' while painting. Frank breaks all this down to help students absorb all aspects of painting techniques. This will be an indoor and outdoor workshop as weather permits. Frank is an award-winning watercolor artist and Signature member of the American Watercolor Society (AWS), the National Watercolor Society (NWS), the Transparent Watercolor Society of America (TWSA) and Watercolor West (WW).

"Kim English Oil Painting Workshop"
June 25-29, 2018
 

We will paint live figures indoors and landscapes outdoors and en plein air (with weather permitting) - as well as from reference materials. This workshop will focus on the ability to paint quickly with confidence. This is a skill that can be useful in many situations, especially working on location. Techniques for achieving a spontaneous yet controlled approach will be practiced. With the figures in this workshop we will create numerous quick studies as a means to learning and growth in area of spontaneity, freshness and the development of your intuitive sense. With landscapes, we will spend more time on each piece, but with the same creative and spontaneous process put into practice with confidence.

"Keiko Tanabe Watercolor Workshop: Painting Outdoors En Plein Air"
September 10-13, 2018
 

Designed for those who would like to gain a better understanding of methods and techniques that create paintings with strong impact. The goal is to capture the essence of the subject through the simplification process. The ability to do so and quickly is especially useful when painting en plein air. The process of simplification begins with visualization. In representational art, this ability to see the result of a painting is instrumental in realizing an artist’s vision. Through various exercises and step-by-step demonstrations, Keiko shows how you can take the initial inspiration through the simplification process to an expressive painting that is strong in composition and content. We will paint different subjects every day, en plein-air weather permitting.
