Art Courses - Painting




After a general introduction to the pure and transparent characteristics of watercolor as well as the layering of colors, we will begin to seek the true essence of nature, such as sunlight, cold moon and the smell of mud. Subjects include still life, landscape and our imagination. Students will be challenged to discover new aspects of the medium. There will be discussions related to the process of painting during each class. Sketching and drawing will be encouraged as a base of study for artistic vision. Feel free to bring in works for critique. All levels welcome.

Watercolor with Gary Tucker

watercolor painting series

Advancing with Watercolor - Developing a Motif
A sustained focus on a single motif or theme  can contribute greatly to the development of the individual artist.  Consider Constable and clouds, Turner and the sea, Monet and haystacks...During this session each artist will chose a motif or an image and over the 8 weeks create a body of work that develops and extends that motif. Beginning from drawings and studies the artist will internalize the subject through immersion. Later working towards interpretation through mood as generated by color, edge, shape and tonal contrast with the same subject.  The goal will be to produce a body of work that that reveals a saturation in the subject, the ability to form interpretations of the the subject, and a  deeper understanding of the visual language.
