Workshop Title – Paint Outside the Box of Your Photos
International artist, Carl Dalio, is well known for his expressive use of color and his friendly, easy-going teaching style. In joyfully sharing his experiences as a professional artist, Carl’s goal is to encourage students to find and engage their own personal and creative spirits. He has conducted inspiring watercolor demonstrations and workshops in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe and Indonesia. His paintings, infused with vibrant light and saturated color, have appeared six times on the covers of national art magazines.
Learn to create powerhouse watercolors using your own photo references. Are you tired of struggling with your photos and being disappointed with your watercolor results? Painting from life is certainly the best teacher for the effects of light and color. But when that’s not possible, many artists turn to their photo references and get trapped into “reporting” what the photo is dictating, detail by detail. Learn how to transform static camera images into inspired, passion-filled paintings that celebrate our human selves. AWS and NWS Signature member Carl Dalio, will show you how to create vibrant paintings that not only get into exhibitions but win awards.
Registration is open on the SWS website, www.swswatercolor.org.
