"Mid-Tone Crisis, Ink First"

April 6th, 2023

7:00 – 9:00 pm 

at the Hawthorne Center

6175 Sunny Spring

Columbia, MD 21044

Do you struggle with depth and dimension in your paintings? 
Are you lost in a mire of mid-tones? 

Then check out the article about our workshop instructor, Joe Cibere, in “Watercolor Artist” Magazine February 2019 issue, and sign up to learn not only a new technique, but how to use value to turn your photos into dynamic paintings.

Using ink qualifies as "Water media Art"

The Baltimore Watercolor Society is excited to feature internationally respected watercolor artist Joe Cibere for an evening program on Thursday, April 6th at the Hawthorn Center in Columbia, MD.

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

Joe: "As a watercolor instructor for many years, I’ve discovered that some students fall into the trap of what I call “mid-tone crisis”. No white paper left and they don’t know where to put their darks, a mid-tone mess! My super-simple technique for curing this is to use a 3-value NOTAN study to take the guesswork out of the design and painting process. How cool!"
