Watercolor Group Studio Exercise

The class will learn how to create an image of the subjects shown below, a crystal bowl with florals and Koi pond water in watercolor with a step by step process. To speed up the class exercise, Soon Y Warren will provide a reference photo and drawing. Following a painting demonstration, workshop participants will do their own painting in order to fully understand the process. While concentrating on technique, the concept of color theory, composition, and color values will be incorporated into the workshop.

While painting workshop participants will learn:

  • Glazing and washing techniques to create a luminous under painting
  • How to utilize light and dark values in order to capture the sparkle of glass
  • How to approach a painting
  • How to incorporate the concept of color theory and color relationships into a painting
  • Discussion and critiques will follow during workshop session
  • In addition to the group exercise, participants are encouraged to bring current pieces to paint along with reference photos. To make the most of instructional time, prepare the drawing before the workshop.

I try to paint the essence of subjects and my sincere feeling for nature."
