Mixed Media
Watercolor with Gary Tucker


watercolor painting series

 


Watercolor offers challenges and rewards to all levels of artists. We approach the medium from it's basics. Using glazes, wet into wet mixtures, and dry bush we build our watercolor vocabulary. Each week features a demonstration or presentation of a particular technique in watercolor, drawing, or design. Gary brings in a seasonal still life some weeks, on other weeks paint along with one of Gary's demonstrations. A group critique concludes each meeting.
Each term we focus on a theme and the weekly homework assignments build on that theme. The theme this term will be "Fire and Ice"

Watercolor

 

After a general introduction to the pure and transparent characteristics of watercolor as well as the layering of colors, we will begin to seek the true essence of nature, such as sunlight, cold moon and the smell of mud. Subjects include still life, landscape and our imagination. Students will be challenged to discover new aspects of the medium. There will be discussions related to the process of painting during each class. Sketching and drawing will be encouraged as a base of study for artistic vision. Feel free to bring in works for critique. All levels welcome.
