Watercolor workshop:
Painting a Glowing Still Life in Watercolor
Step-by-step watercolor techniques to achieve realistic effects
Taught by nationally acclaimed artist Barbara Fox

Saturday and Sunday, May 3 and 4, 2014
10 am to 4 pm

Using a still life and photographs, the participants will learn how to plan a painting, and to use the technique of layering washes to build glowing color and dramatic contrast.

Participants will paint a challenging still life, incorporating the transparency and reflections of glass and/or metal, and the texture and color of fruits and/or flowers. Barbara will start the class with a demonstration of her technique, and throughout the workshop give more demonstrations of each step of painting.

Everyone will paint from the same photograph that the instructor will provide.
