Joel Janowitz: Painting Light-A Watercolor Workshop
June 27 - July 2, 2010
This workshop will explore the renowned ability of watercolor to convey the experience of light, as well as form and space. Through a close look at watercolor's unique characteristics, we will develop strategies for painting with this remarkable and challenging medium. Progressive exercises and projects will focus on a variety of working methods and on increasing one's awareness of color and value relationships—two key factors in capturing a convincing sense of light. The class will work primarily from observation of still life, the model, and also landscape. This workshop is intended both for students new to watercolor and for those more experienced with the medium. Good drawing skills will be helpful.
