Of watercolor painting, Ron says “I believe watercolor is simply the best medium to capture light [and] shadow….” Now you have this opportunity to learn techniques from this award-winning artist and instructor!
In this two day workshop, Ron Stocke will show students how he approaches dramatic light in watercolor. The warm soft light of the sunrise and sunset to the dramatic manmade light of a night scene. These techniques will show how light and shadow can be used to help connect areas of your paintings and create the mood of the scene. “More importantly,” says Ron, “to paint light, you must paint dark (shadows). We will approach the shadows with the same color and excitement as we do the light.” Students will be encouraged to pump up their values and be free with their brushstrokes, learning from Ron’s techniques to keep things simple, enjoying the process of watercolor and allowing the medium to have life of its own.
Most supplies are available at Art Spot for 10% off. Please let their staff advise you about appropriate art materials to fulfill requirements for your class.
