Watercolor Workshop: "Making Every Stroke Count" with Pittsburgh Artist Bill Vrscak

April 10, 2019 - April 12, 2019

Overview

Emphasis in this workshop will be on helping students find the essential elements and qualities in the subject matter, and through demonstrations and group critiques show how to present these essentials in a simple, direct way. The object is to eliminate extraneous information and details, and simplify the subject. Students will be encouraged to look beyond the representational aspect of the subject to the dynamics of contrast, light, movement, space, etc; elements which help make paintings come alive. Students may work outdoors, weather permitting, or indoors from their own photos and sketches.

Level: Intermediate to Advanced watercolor painters. Beginners are welcome, but they should have some drawing experience and at least some experience with another medium.
