TICKETS: Workshop: Blurred Lines, Sept 2017
The September workshop sold out the day it went online on Facebook. Therefore, an October workshop with the same material, format and venue has been scheduled. This will be the last Blurred Lines workshop this year.
Join me and an intimate group as we build our skills in edge variety and work towards a plein air painting in this intense 2-day workshop. The workshop aims to build confidence in using a brush as an efficient drawing tool while teaching how variety of lost and found edges inserts interest in a painting. Arch Art and Drafting Supplies store lends it’s light filled studio for our in-studio exercises. They will also have the art materials I use in stock other than the extensive collection of pigments, inks and art materials they always carry for purchase. Day two will use the lessons of day 1 and homework in a larger plein air painting. Friday, September 22, 4PM-7PM + homework
Saturday, September 23, 12PM-4PM If you sign up, it is assumed you’ve read the FAQ below, so please do read!
Out of stock
The workshop sold out the day it went online on Facebook. Therefore, an October workshop with the same material, format and venue has been scheduled.
We all want the point of interest in our paintings to have a contrast – a value contrast, a color contrast and now, how about edge contrast? Let the areas outside of center of interest become shapes that melt into each other while having a mix of sharp and soft edges only within the circle of interest. When you don’t have to worry about colors mixing in large portions of your sketch, you can draw directly with a brush making for a speedy capture. I will teach the different types of edges, their typical use and practice with the attendees. Though proficiency with edges is not a pre-requisite, familiarity with watercolor is a must.
Is there a minimum age requirement to enter the event?
18 years or older
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Limited parking within Arch Supply premises available. Street parking is available.
What can I bring into the event?
Supply list will be emailed to you upon booking your ticket.
What’s the refund policy?
No refunds except if venue and date changes.
Is previous watercolor experience required?
Yes, previous watercolor experience is needed.
Is this a repeat of the workshop held in Chicago for the Urban Sketchers’ Symposium?
USK symposium workshops are 3 hour long workshops held outdoors. This is a more intense workshop where we will start with exercises in studio before we step out the next day. There will be homework given between two days and working on it will enable greater success with the workshop. The aim of the workshop will be to push our boundaries, therefore, expect to be uncomfortable.
How big is the class?
We will be ~12 of us.
Why these timings?
Bay area lifestyle means that we want to have our day in office but not give up our entire weekends to hobbies. So, Friday evening and Saturday afternoon made most sense. See you there!
Seriously, there is homework?
Yup. Nothing substitutes self practice done in solitude, therefore homework. I will bring my A game to the workshop and I expect the attendees to put in their best effort too.
