Beyond Basics: Watercolor Workshop Series with Reva Power
Session 4: Colorful underpaintings
Nov 14 Into 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.
The student will be given insight into using color to convey mood. The importance of understanding composition will be emphasized. Learn the difference between non-objective abstraction and representational abstraction.
Create a piece that will engage and mystify the viewer while bringing pleasure and satisfaction to the artist.
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. Each workshop is self-contained; take one or take the entire series to get a discount.
