"Design, Design, Design"
April 4-6, 2019
 

The focus of the workshop is design in watercolor. Design is deliberate and intuitive. It goes well beyond just painting a pretty picture. The mission of this workshop is to stimulate your mind through the "thinking process" and the emphasis will be through landscape painting. Exploring shapes and their relationships and placement on paper; exploring lights and darks; exploring color in design; and adding verve to your painting (movement, calligraphy, design for flatness, and abstraction), will all be addressed in this workshop.

"Elegance in Watercolor with Uma"
April 7-8, 2019
 

The focus of this two-day watercolor workshop is with learning how to use just enough design elements to make watercolors sing. Exercises will be given to develop the 'artist's eye' and to overcome the fear of wet-in-wet painting. There will be plenty of 1-1 discussions and a critique at the end of day two. This workshop is fast paced.

"Architect of Light...It's All about the Light"
