Express Yourself: Landscape/Cityscape, a painting workshop with Michael Holter

VAST workshop Michael Holter

Express Yourself: Landscape/Cityscape,a painting workshop with Michael Holter,
April 10th – 12th, at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, 400 East Hickory, Denton, Texas 76202.

This workshop will focus on the use of watercolor to paint exciting impressionistic paintings of landscapes and cityscapes. You will paint from photographs and will explore the use of light and shadow to create interesting compositions and achieve dynamic results. We will work on basic perspective and how to appropriately incorporate figures into the painting.

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 landscapes and portraits and show you several high-speed video demonstrations. You will have ample time to successfully complete your own paintings.

Michael welcomes novice and advanced students and tailors the painting experience to individual needs.

From Herb Reed, past president of Southwestern Watercolor Society.
“For the past dozen years I have facilitated and/or participated in more than 20 watercolor workshops, as an officer of SWS and as a principal in a local gallery. Michael’s recent workshop on watercolor portraits was one of the top few that “really made a difference” in the way that I approach painting. Take it . . . you will learn about design and composition, techniques, and hints on taking reference photos — all for turning out terrific watercolor portraits.”

Cost of the workshop is $195 for VAST Members and $230 for non-members.
