Splash Dynamic will help students develop strong watercolor paintings using bold value arrangements, powerful lights and darks, correct linear perspective, and attention to focus in large-scale urban landscape paintings.

Painting up 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 number of urban architectural research photos with a strong sense of light and shadow.

Think drama!
