MASTERCLASS | FRESH, LOOSE AND LIVELY – Extending Watercolor Techniques with John Lovett
This workshop is suitable for all skill levels.
Watercolor is a wonderful, responsive medium. This workshop takes watercolor’s immediacy and excitement and introduces ink, pastel, charcoal, gesso and gouache to produce a rich vibrant result suited to a great variety of subjects.
We will learn techniques that allow us to work loosely and intuitively, responding to what is happening within the painting, rather than sticking rigidly to a predetermined plan.
I will guide you through my approach to watercolor, then encourage you to expand on that with a variety of exciting techniques that blend with and extend the traditional approach to watercolor painting.
You will learn to :
• Work on the painting as a balanced whole rather than a collection of separate parts
• Relate different techniques to different subjects
• Keep control and balance subtlety with accidental looseness.
I will provide a variety of painting subjects and will do two demos each day. The demos will be done in stages and I will assist students between demonstrating.
We will work hard, have a lot of fun and produce some exciting paintings.
