“Sensitive & Dynamic” will help students develop strong large-scale urban landscape watercolor paintings using bold value arrangements, contrast, correct linear perspective, and powerful composition. Painting on easels, this workshop will concentrate on the process of developing a watercolor painting beginning with small value sketches in pencil, the use of ‘grisaille’ to build value contrast, layering of local color, and ‘deconstructing’ a painting with the use of thrown water, splatters, spray bottles, and runs and blooms. Students are required to bring a selection of urban architectural research photos with a strong sense of light and shadow. Think drama!
