The Joy of Watercolor
Some drawing experience, familiarity with watercolors
August 17th thru 20th
Studio/Plein Air Combo
$600 per person
Discover a fresh, loose approach to transparent watercolor. Learn to work with, not against, the medium to create dynamic paintings that seem to paint themselves. Learn how to observe and to simplify in a plein air setting and avoid overworking.
Each day there will be demonstrations and exercises to energize and excite — followed by lots of time for painters to create their own work, with the enthusiastic hands-on instruction that Marilyns students have come to expect.
This is a perfect workshop for those with some drawing and watercolor experience who have always wanted to try their hand at plein air, as well as those who are already familiar with working outside.
Marilyn often speaks to students about the creative process: how to censor their own critical voices, make choices, cede control, and take risks that help them to integrate the things they have learned from successes as well as failures. There is nothing more rewarding to me than to watch a student transported by the process and fall in love with art making.
