A demo in the morning of a pond with water lilies will highlight how the complexity of water and reflections can be simplified. Media can be watercolor or oil. Students should have some prior experience with using their paints and equipment.
Christine will demo with quick sketches in watercolor for composition and value and then use oil paints with her no-solvent direct painting method. Please bring your own art materials and photo reference. Oil painters should have a tabletop or portable easel. Tables and chairs provided. This workshop is solvent-free (no Turpentine, Gamesol, Zest-it, Lavender Spike oil, etc.). Christine will talk during the demo about her process. A list of oil supplies will be emailed to students for informational purposes, but is not required. Students are encouraged to bring their favorite supplies.
