Experimental “No Fear” Watercolor Workshop

This workshop approaches watercolor from a contemporary viewpoint!! You will begin to see watercolor in an emotionally bold way. Learn amazing non-traditional powerful techniques in watercolor. You can experiment with; scrubbing, dripping, splashing and glazing and more in a loose textural manner. Learn about different papers, non-traditional tools, brushes and painting on an easel.  Charlsen will demonstrate scratching, sanding, layering, glazing or spattering, puddling, and smudging the work to get dramatic effects. Choose a subject with dramatic value and bring the painting to life. Start new work, bring your own work to salvage/enhance, bring your own reference or use what is provided.  Experiment with light and dark before color and creating a strong mood before subject. Overcome your fears as you delve into and practice the important element of design – light and dark, or value. Start with darks and work into the light while you learn Notan and Grisaille. Create a value scale and a monochromatic scale too! The goal is for each student to explore and develop their own techniques that will be useful in future work.  This is a workshop for all levels, artists with no or a lot of experience who want to explore new and free techniques.  Each day will include some demonstration time, individual time and group evaluation time.
