MW_BSA02 - Bay School of Art: Watercolour Explorations

WATERCOLOUR EXPLORATIONS

Just by the nature of the medium, watercolour paintings are full of light, colour and mood. Martha wants to detonate the myth that this medium is difficult. Her methods are both simple and inventive. Martha will continue to teach watercolour fundamentals to new students focusing on handling the medium to gain control and confidence. More seasoned students will explore painting on canvas and yupo paper (non porous)and use a broader spectrum of pigments and technical supports.

DRAWING IN CHARCOAL

Accurate drawing ability is an essential component to an artist’s expression. We explore Accuracy, Line, Texture, Value, Composition, Perspective and Negative Space, all components of successful work. Using charcoal will encourage confident free expression, bypassing the “intellect” and fostering hand-eye coordination. Boldness, bravery, sensitivity and hard work are the only requirements.

Join artist Dorothy Shelton of Wolfpaw Creations for this encaustic art workshop

Encaustic art is an ancient technique using heated wax to create colour, texture and depth.
It teaches letting go and releasing the urge to control. Synchronicity happens when we align with the flow of the universe rather than insisting it flow our way. When we let go of tension and stress, the magic happens.
