Spring Flowers Still Life in Watercolor and/or Pastel with Dannielle Mick
Sunday May 7, 2023 10-3pm
Spring Flowers Still Life
Instructor: Dannielle Mick
Spring is here. It’s time to paint the beautiful colors. This workshop gives you several options for media. You can use the pastel or watercolor separately or you can combine two very compatible media. The pastel and watercolor student will learn the different techniques of watercolor application. How much water that is desired to get different effects will be covered and is most important. The pastelist will then lay the pastels over the watercolor painting letting some of the watercolor come through for a rich surface color.
This workshop for both media will explore composition, color contrasts, complements, light and dark value. Learning to edit the photo and selecting the focal point will be discussed.
We will touch on color mixing, blocking and layering of colors, light source to achieve balance and simplicity in the values and colors of the spring flower.
Students will work from photo reference that I supply. This workshop is open to all skill levels.
Demonstrations and class critique will round out this informative workshop.
Materials not included.
