'Watercolor Portrait Sketching'
Pam is a retired teacher who has always been drawn to portraits and figurative work. She has worked with local instructors and with watercolor artists, Ted Nuttall and Charles Reid. She counts many amazing artists among her friends. They keep her constantly inspired and challenged to grow in her craft.
Pam’s portrait paintings are her real love. She says it’s hard to explain the excitement of trying to connect with a person through their expression…their pose…their placement in the composition. Her work has been exhibited and won awards in National and Local shows, including Pennsylvania’s “Art of the State”, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society’s Juried Shows, and the Baltimore Watercolor Society
Workshop description - "Watercolor Portrait Sketching"
In this one day workshop, explore painting in a spontaneous style that involves minimal layering and the use of transparent colors.
This workshop will be a combination of demo and hands-on portrait work. You will primarily work from partially pre-drawn portraits that will be provided in the class. (You will finish the drawings, but the basics will be there) If you prefer to work completely freehand, that is fine.
In the workshop, we will analyze some of the common mistakes that are made when painting portraits in watercolor and look at examples of successful watercolor portraits.
Students should be comfortable with painting in watercolor, but do not need to have experience with portrait painting.
Pam: "I will have partially pre-drawn portraits for you to work on (printed very faintly on hot press paper) or you may draw freehand. You may want to bring some other small sheets of watercolor paper or a watercolor block to use for practice if you there is time in the workshop
Bring all your usual watercolor supplies: water container, paper towels, small board to attach your watercolor paper to, drawing pencils (I just use BIC #2 mechanical pencils), push pins or tape.
Bring your own palette and brushes that you feel comfortable with. I’d suggest using no brushes smaller than a #10. I use Loew Cornell Ultra Round brushes (very cheap and I just grab a new one when I wreck the point)
I use mostly transparent colors. Here’s my color list for those who are interested. (But don’t feel you need to buy new colors for the workshop.)"
*Winsor Yellow Deep
*Manganese Blue or Peacock Blue
