Session 1 features paintings from my 2018 Maine Sketchbook
What makes a good painting? The ingredients are: line, size, shape, direction, texture, color, and value. Remember, ONE of these is Value. Emphasize one or two of these DESIGN PRINCIPLES: Unity, Balance, Harmony, Dominance, Conflict, Repetition, Variation, Gradation and your painting gets interesting. Lesson 2 on Nov. 14, 2018 will be devoted to adding at least 3 value to the objects and/or shapes in your paintings using a simple color scheme.
Class format consists of a watercolor painting demonstration by the instructor during the morning and again after lunch, then the class paints with individual help from Julie. A critique of the class work follows at the end of the day.
