Beyond Watercolor Basics

Intro Abstract Instructor Reva Power

Cost: $75.00. supplies not included 

Tues, November 14, 2018 

9:30am - 1:30pm

STUDIO IN THE WOODS, 26002 BUDDE RD, THE WOODLANDS, TX 77380 

Introducing Abstraction with a plan…. The artists will be given insight into creating an abstract painting. By using a variety of specific techniques, the mystery of making an abstract painting will be unlocked. Have you ever said, “I don’t do abstract”?  Did you realize every painting you do has in some way been abstracted? It can create a feeling that you can't see or touch. It may be an intangible concept, or a mood created from the representation of concrete objects.

In each of these workshops award-winning Reva Power will focus on one aspect of watercolor technique and application. The limited size of these workshops will ensure participants will get individual attention.

If  you  have paintings  in your studio that are languishing a slow death because you lost interest in them, suffered a creative block, or couldn’t find a way to bring your vision to your canvas, then spending time and learning how to reconcile your old “stopping” place with a brilliant new direction, this workshop with Vickie McMillan is for you. Pack up and bring those unfinished pieces to this workshop! Or just start a new painting incorporating new texture ideas and techniques. Critiques by this master artist are given with encouragement, kindness, and specific direction. “Just as actors need directors and writers need editors, we as artists need that second or third ‘set of eyes’. Critiques help us 

understand how our work is perceived by our audience – the viewer. Sometimes we can spot issues on our own, but most times we need input from others. This is where critique becomes an important part of our development as artists….Matt Fussell in “The Importance of Critique in Art”.
