This workshop will focus on ways to use watercolor in portraying portraiture and the human figure. Students will work from life with the clothed models as well as observe demonstrations by the instructor. While painting using the model, students will develop explorations into the unique abilities of watercolor, applying several principles, which include: anatomy, the use of light and shadow, shape, value, edge, temperature, construction, and approaches to composition. These will be examined from multiple fronts while focusing on each student’s strengths.
