Instructor – Alan R. Young
In this two-day workshop, students will be improving upon their watercolor technique by introducing a new style of dry brush painting. This technique will improve control over the watercolor paint, allowing for a more photorealistic finished product.
Paint wildlife and nature elements in watercolor with a dry brush technique using “less” water, minimal underpainting. Students will learn the technique of painting by subtraction, the lifting of paint to create highlights, and layering shadows. Each application follows the “dry” stage of the painting. Unlike traditional watercolor, there is no wet on wet, or similar applications. For intermediate students, the chiaroscuro effect (black background, negative subject matter) will be demonstrated and practiced. Basic drawing and value scale principle will be taught.
