We are pleased to announce that Michael Reardon, a California award winning water-colorist and illustrator, will be giving a special presentation for the Baltimore Watercolor Society on the evening of Wednesday, November 15, 2017.

Michael Reardon: Watercolor, if treated correctly, can be much easier than it’s reputation might suggest. I can think of no other form of expression that I delight in more than painting and it is my sincere wish to share that pleasure with others.”

Michael will demonstrate a painting from start to finish. During the demonstration, I will discuss my choices and strategy to complete the painting, including pigments, timing, and values.

Explore the medium of watercolor in a relaxing and creative environment. Award winning water-colorist, Michael Reardon, sole focus will be bringing your creativity to light and aiding you in dispelling the myths of the difficulties of painting in this wonderful medium. Given the right encouragement and understanding of the basic fundamentals, watercolor is a creative outlet unmatched in its ease of use, cost of materials, and pure enjoyment of artistic expression.

Manipulating light and color is essential to all watercolor painting. In this evening program, Michael will demonstrate the importance of values in creating a sense of light and the role color plays in the mood of your landscapes and cityscapes.

Composition and vibrant color mixtures will be covered, emphasizing tools such as focal points, planes of depth, edge conditions, complementary colors, and color temperature. Michael will share his lengthy experience in architectural illustration to assist participants in ways to improve the structure of their paintings. He will also emphasize painting directly and with confidence.
