"There seems to be a never-endinq quest to loosen up in watercolor.  I hear it from my students all the time. It’s easy to fall into the trap of putting too much into your paintings, and editing out the non-essential whether working from photo reference or painting on location is so important.

Painting loosely doesn't just 'happen', it comes from gaining a comfort level with your skills and materials over time.  However, there are techniques that can speed up this process. 

My workshop will focus on using value studies from the outset to identify the large shapes in a scene.  These large shapes provide the artist with opportunities for lost edges when painting in watercolor, which is essential if we are to take full advantage of the medium.  Too often the 'found edges', or details, take over the painter's thinking process, and the result is a tight watercolor. 

We will move on toward color paintings with a lot of individual help, and if time permits we will complete a painting together.  Demonstration paintings will be done by Andy every day to reinforce the day’s lessons.  

The first day will take place in the studio, so I can better explain my process through a value study to color painting.  Weather permitting, we will venture outdoors on the second day where I will once again demonstrate and give students an opportunity to work on location.  Please come prepared to work both indoors and out.

In order to loosen up it is imperative to have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish with your painting and then execute it quickly.  This class will give you the tools and confidence to do just that."

Materials list:

-Paper; please bring a pad of cheaper watercolor paper for value studies as well as

     good quality paper, quarter sheet size, for paintings.

  My palette consists of Neutral Tint, Paynes Gray, Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Blue, Sap Green, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Quinacridone Gold, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Lemon.

-Palette;  must have good size mixing area.  The John Pike palette is wonderful.
