Watercolor Painting Workshop: September 21 - 24
The Watercolor Painting Workshop is geared to the beginner, intermediate painter and professional alike... you'll work hard, but Tony Couch will show you how to have fun doing it. The eight Principles of Design will be cut down to size and each day you will see how they are applied to watercolor painting. You will learn something valuable and practice it on the spot, coming away with increased understanding and several watercolor paintings of your own of which you will be proud.
Watercolor classes generally start at 9:00 each morning. After a brief talk on the day's objectives, Tony Couch will do a complete painting, telling you what he's doing as he does it, and why. The "mysteries" of design will be unraveled for you while you learn watercolor painting!
At noon we break for lunch, then YOU paint in the afternoon while what you have seen and learned is fresh in your mind. It's the fastest way to learn how to paint.
One afternoon Tony will give a slide/lecture on the principles of design. He'll also cover the major value patterns and effective uses of color. You may either attend, or use this time to paint.
At about 3:30 Tony critiques all the work produced during the day, including his own. It's a time at which much is learned by all. By 5:00 we're finished. Of course, you may come and go as you wish at any time, and Tony will critique your work early if you've finished and have to leave earlier.
Anyone 18 yrs. or older is eligible to attend an upcoming watercolor painting workshop by Tony Couch. Classes are made up of beginners, hobbyists, students and professionals. The class is necessarily limited in size on a "first come" basis, and your check is your reservation.
