The Artists’ Showplace — Dallas
In this workshop you will focus on the use of watercolor to paint exciting impressionistic paintings of people. You will explore the use of light and shadow to create interesting compositions and achieve dynamic results.
We will examine the fundamentals of watercolor painting to assure that all students are familiar with the techniques. Daily discussions and application of the principles and elements of design will be woven into your painting experience.
Each day you will engage in exercises that will solidify the content that you are working on and spend time viewing other artists work. We will discuss the methods and the impact that these artists achieve using their techniques.
Michael will demonstrate his approach to creating portraits and show you several high-speed video demonstrations.
Many watercolorists have an aversion to painting people. Special attention will be paid to the steps Michael uses to paint his award-winning figurative paintings. By the end of the workshop you will feel confident that you too can complete successful paintings.
And you will have ample time to successfully complete your own paintings.
Michael welcomes novice and advanced students and tailors the experience to individual needs.
