Watercolor has a reputation for being a spontaneous medium. What does that mean? It means boldly simple and not caught up in fine details. It has a fresh, impressionistic look where the subject has been reduced to its essentials. In this workshop, the group will be working from a beautiful reference photograph of Eagle Lake above Lake Tahoe in the Desolation Wilderness hiking area.
All the myriad details of Mountain peaks, stands of Ponderosa pine trees, granite rocks, lake reflections, native grass, and fallen, sun-bleached tree trunks will be distilled to manageable values, shapes, and color hues. You will follow me step-by-step from painting start to painting finish, ending with a crisp, bright, non-overworked landscape painting – boldly simple!
Materials needed? Only one loan, round watercolor brush (that comes to a very fine point), and five primary colors.
