Splash Dynamic will help students who already have some familiarity with the medium to develop strong watercolor paintings using bold value arrangements, powerful lights and darks, correct linear perspective, and attention to focal points in large-scale urban landscape paintings.

This workshop will concentrate on the process of developing a watercolor painting beginning with small value sketches in pencil, the use of ‘grisaille’ to build value contrast, layering of local color, and ‘deconstructing’ a painting with the use of thrown water, splatters, spray bottles, and runs and blooms.

We will discuss compositional elements, correct linear perspective, color mixing, developing focal point, and with demonstrations throughout the workshop.

Students are required to have a number of urban or country architectural research photos with a strong sense of light and shadow. Think drama!
