Waterloo Watercolor presents Barbara Nechis’ Workshop description: Barbara’s workshops are 3 days and for all participants who want to gain a deeper understanding of the creative process of watercolor art by painting with watercolor, willing to be flexible, take risks, have fun, be intuitive, and inventive. We will not be using rules and formulas of traditional art by painting with watercolor; however, the emphasis will still be on concept, color and design. My inspiration comes both from nature and the inevitable unpredictability of the watercolor medium. Both abstract and realistic forms will be addressed. I present and demonstrate a different method or idea each day using several techniques to show how to construct original paintings from both source material and the imagination.
- controlling paint on wet paper,
- under-painting and
Critiques will approach problem solving upon the premise that there is always a solution that can turn an unsuccessful painting into a successful one.
This watercolor painting workshop focuses on building your confidence with your paint. Come and join us in this workshop.
