    We are pleased to have nationally recognized artist April Rimpo. She is a prize-winning artist, teacher, demonstrator, juror, and Signature member of six National Watercolor Societies, the International Society of Acrylic Painters, and the International Society of Experimental Artists.  Her acrylic and watercolor paintings have appeared in three North Light Best of Acrylic books and in two Best of Watercolor book, Splash 19, and the Splash 21 publication.

    In this 4-day virtual workshop we’ll focus on creating a painting on Aquabord. This surface has some properties like working on watercolor paper but other properties that lean toward working on more slick surfaces.

    Learn how to work with watercolor washes to produce small vibrant paintings. Reference materials and instructions on preparing the Aquabord prior to the class will be supplied and mailed about 1 month prior to the workshop along with two Aquabord panels and a frame.

    There will be a step by-step instruction demonstrations, and one-on-one interaction during the class. Knowledge of basic watercolor is helpful.

    These will be sent to all registered at BWS's expense.

    • Ampersand Aquabord Panel - 8'' x 8'', 7/8'' Cradled (For workshop painting)

    We are pleased to have nationally recognized artist Stacy Lund Levy in this one day workshop.

    "Painting Animals in Watercolor"


    Workshop attendees should have an understanding of basic watercolor techniques.


    Artist and Baltimore native, Stacy Lund Levy has been creating art in many forms since kindergarten.  She is a former medical illustrator turned professional fine artist and teacher. Currently she teaches classes at Carroll Community College and North Carroll Senior Center, as well as watercolor workshops in and around Maryland. She is both a board member and signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society, and will become a signature member of both the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Watercolor Societies in September.  Her work can be viewed at Lundartstudios.com, on Instagram @Artorangutan, and in the ManneqART Museum.

                                      



     

    Capture the personality and feel of soft fur on animals using soft vs hard edges and a bit a masking fluid.  In this workshop the artists will be painting both wet into wet, and wet into dry, with a judicious application of masking fluid that will create a wide array of textured fur, both short and long, black, white, and all coat colors in between .


    Challenge yourself to push your abilities to control both water and paint, while learning the full potential and versatility of wet in wet painting and the use of masking fluid.  These techniques can be used to paint a variety of subjects.


    The instructor will provide a photo reference or the artist may use a reference of their own.  If you use your own reference, please be sure it is in focus, large enough to see all the details, and has a true white and a true dark.


    SUPPLY LIST

    A completed drawing from the reference provided (or yours), size doesn’t matter, but no smaller than 8x10”.


    Paper: Feel free to use whatever brand of good quality paper that you are comfortable with.  Also have several sheets of scrap watercolor paper to practice masking, as well as the various color combinations.  I recommend either Arches or Fabriano. I use Arches 300 lb. cold pressed.


    Paint

    Different brands produce different results.  I prefer Daniel Smith or Winsor & Newton.   I will be demonstrating with the following colors:


    Ultramarine Blue

    Burnt Sienna

    Alizarin Crimson

    Yellow ochre

    Cerulean Blue

    Cobalt Blue

    Opera Rose

    Quinadradone Gold

    Viridian


    Masking Fluid

    I prefer Pebeo, because it is pale blue and you can see where you are applying it.  Please bring what you are comfortable with. MAKE SURE IT HAS NOT DRIED UP. Masking fluid should be very liquid and not clumped.

    Rubber cement pick-up (to remove masking)

    Brushes

    Various sizes (again, whatever you are comfortable with).  I typically use a 1” flat or larger for backgrounds, Rounds #4, 8, 10, 12, or 14 rounds

    I prefer Ascota Perla, Loew Cornell Ultra Round, and Princeton Aqua Elite

    Rigger brush for small details.

    Grainer brush ¼ or ½” for fur.  These can be found online at Dick Blick or Plaza Art for under $10.00.

          

    Grainer Brush


    Standard Painting Supplies

    Bring the standard watercolor supplies: 

    water container

    Palette - any type, with or without wells/reservoirs  (an old plate can substitute)

    paper towels

    block or board to attach watercolor paper

    Masking tape

    pencil

    Exacto or box cutter

          

    Please pack a lunch and beverage.

      For more information about Anne visit http://www.anneabgott.com


      All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium.

      With 18 years experience, both locally and internationally and over 100 awards, in 2018 Anne was represented in two International shows in Canada and Greece. Anne is a past president of the Florida Watercolor Society, the Florida SunCoast watercolor society, and Art Center Manatee.

      Anne has achieved Signature status in seven National Watercolor Societies, not including the holy grail for watercolorists: AWS and NWS. She has won over 100 awards from competitive shows both locally and nationally. Her recent awards have been in National Watercolor Society, Southwest Watercolor Society, San Diego Watercolor Society.

      She began taking images, some of which were very old, and manipulated them to come up with exciting results that put the fire back into her painting. These images had a “wow” factor that was missing from her compositions and paintings.

      She has spent a couple of years working with her enhanced images and with opaque watercolors, and these paintings have been successful for her in competitions and sales. Mission watercolors have some beautiful tube grays, and she began experimenting by adding transparent watercolor to tint the tube grays, along with mixing paints by using opaque white watercolor.

      Syllabus:

      Proposed workshop curriculum

      by Keiko Tanabe

       Theme:  Capturing Essence with Watercolor

       

      RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE:

      All levels (basic knowledge & some previous experiences strongly recommended to benefit from this workshop)


      WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

      This workshop is designed for those who would like to gain a better understanding of methods and techniques to make a watercolor painting that is simple yet strong.  The goal is to capture the essence of the subject that conveys a certain mood. The process of simplification begins with visualization.  In representational art, this ability to see the end result of a painting, through the mind’s eye, is instrumental in realizing an artist’s vision. Through complete, step-by-step demonstrations, Keiko will show you how to take the initial inspiration, through the simplification process, to an expressive painting that is strong in composition and content that is full of light and atmosphere.

      Subject matters include landscape, cityscape, waterscape and interior. The introduction focuses on the fundamentals including getting to know our materials and seeing things with an artist’s eye. The areas of topic covered in this workshop include: a preliminary drawing and composition, a variety of techniques in paint application and brush handling, what makes a good design, understanding of relationship of dark and light values, planning & intuition, and how to edit complex visual information.

      There will be a demonstration, plenty of one-on-one guidance and a question-and-answer session on a daily basis. A class critique may be conducted at the end.

       For more information about Keiko visit www.ktanabefineart.com

      All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium.

      *This is a general list.  Some items below may not be for the workshop you’ve signed up for.  You don’t usually need an easel if a workshop is conducted in the studio, for example.

      - Paints: professional quality brands (such as Sennelier, Winsor & Newton, Holbein, Daniel Smith).  My basic palette consists of cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, burnt umber, quinacridone gold, lemon yellow, cobalt turquoise.  I also include: French ultramarine, yellow ochre or raw sienna, Dioxazine purple, cadmium red, cadmium orange or Winsor orange, viridian, lavender, titanium white.  You may bring your own favorites, too.  Include one color suitable for a monochromatic painting such as neutral tint, sepia, Payne’s gray.

      - Palette: any kind.  Plenty of mixing areas will be useful.

      - Brushes: Large brushes for a wash such as Raphael Softaqua (#6 or 8), Isabey natural hair mop (#8) and Escoda Ultimo (#18 or 20).  Medium-sized rounds (#12) such as Raphael Kolinsky 8494 and Escoda Ultimo or Versatil.  Brushes for details such as Raphael Precision and Escoda Perla (up to #14).  Other brushes useful: liner, rigger, dagger, flat (hake), etc.

      - Paper: rough or cold-pressed; 140 lb (300gm) or heavier; professional quality such as Arches, Saunders/Waterford and Fabriano Artistico.  Please, no student grade paper.

      - Paper Size: For my demos I use 14”x20” (36x51 cm) or half-sheet (15”x22”), and sometimes 18”x 24” (46x61cm).  In an outdoor workshop, a smaller size (12”x16” for example) may be more practical especially for quick studies.

      - Others (required): Drawing board, gatorboard, foamcore or anything that supports paper (If you use a block, this will not be necessary.), masking tape, clips, or staplers to secure paper to the board, Pencil (2B, 4B or 6B) & eraser, Sketchbook or drawing pad for thumbnail sketches and small studies, Container for washing brushes, towels or sponge

      - Others (optional) e.g. table-top or foldable easel, masking fluid, salt, atomizer, tissue, color chart, viewfinder, value finder, ruler, hairdryer; portable chair, umbrella, sunscreen, bug spray, etc. that you think might be useful.

      If you would like to purchase a basic painting/drawing set, here’s a link https://www.judsonsart.com/collections/richeson-instructor-sets/products/keiko-tanabe-watercolor-workshop-kit (This is not everything so you still need TO add other items on this list)

      Any questions about materials?  Please email me ktanabeart@gmail.com.                                  

      * A roll of absorbent kitchen paper towels, absorbent cloth or sponge to soak up extra water on your brush. 

      *Something to hold about a quart of water.
