If you teach, describe class
I provide watercolor workshops on the art of portraiture and still life, focusing on the “chiaroscuro” approach of the old masters, which uses strong light and rich shadow to create intense and dramatic paintings. Workshops include at least one demonstration, illustrating my technique and giving insight into my methods and philosophies. I will discuss setting up vivid still-life compositions, and offer tips on working with a model to create engaging portraits. Special attention will be given to the unique properties of light and shadow, as well as design, value, edges and color.
I also offer instruction on varnishing watercolors and framing without glass.
