WOW! What a terrific workshop we had! Awesome results from students!!!
Learn how to paint watercolor cityscapes with award winning watercolor artist Ryan Fox. Ryan Fox is a signature member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina (WSNC), & Pennsylvania Watercolor Society. Since he began painting in 2011, his paintings have been exhibited in numerous national juried shows - winning awards in the American Watercolor Society, Georgia Watercolor Society, and WSNC. His paintings have been included in Splash 15 & 16 hardcover albums and he was featured in the Ones to Watch article in Watercolor Artists Magazine (Dec. 2015).
Discover the technique of pouring, and layering watercolor paints. Set aside your brush as you mix and pour juicy layers of watercolor paints, building up translucent layers that can only be achieved through pouring techniques. The primary application of paint is done through pouring, letting gravity do the work for you. Brush work is saved for the final touches.
In this three-day workshop, students will focus on cityscape scenes. Ryan will discuss simplifying complex architectural scenes and seeing color first and foremost as a value. The workshop will be a learning experience with daily demonstrations, one-on-one consultations, and constructive critiques. All levels of students are encouraged to participate. Students are welcome to bring their own photographs or use the instructor’s photographic resources.
The cost of this workshop is $325.00.
