The workshop will focus on painting light and color in watercolor. Steve says that “In this workshop I will give stu- dents the tools to create painterly and believable watercolors; but more importantly, I seek to take them beyond merely “copying” their subject. An artist needs to also paint from his heart and seek to communicate the emotional and spiritual beauty of God’s creation.”
In his colorful paintings his goal is to capture the spirit and ambiance of
the place. He is not trying to replace the camera by recording the facts of the place, but he seeks to paint a truthful representa- tion of the scene. He tries to communicate the feeling of late afternoon sunlight, or quietly disturbed water He wants to communicate the presence and sense of what I felt when I was there.
Workshop participants will learn about light and color and the way watercolor behaves, dealing with dark values in watercolor, painting reflections and much, much more. The goal of my workshop is to encourage each artist to advance his or her own vision and to improve the skills necessary to communicate that in watercolor.
