This workshop will focus on the all-important aspect of Creating an Area of Dominance and for those who wish to loosen up in watercolor. Discussions will focus on what makes a good composition and the design tools needed to attract the eye, carry it throughout the picture plane, and then rest on the Area of Dominance. Painting techniques and a philosophy of design will encourage bold, loose paintings. Eric believes most painting problems are the violation of an elementary painting principle. Lectures will be easily understood and helpful to those with previous watercolor experience. There will be ample time for students to try the concepts presented in a safe environment.

Eric will do a completed painting demonstration daily. Subject matter may include land, marine, streetscapes, florals, interiors, and still life.
