This workshop explores watercolor principles and techniques as applied to landscape, flowers, and still life.
Nude models will be available for drawing from life. Kevin Feary, Larry DeKock, and Steve will facilitate the evening.
Focuses on the techniques of the Old Masters. Participants begin with a drawing as an underpainting, then apply paint over this to achieve accuracy, depth, and a rich surface. Participants will choose their imagery from photos, still lifes, landscapes, or imagination. There will be individual instruction as well as daily demonstrations.
Steve will continue to demonstrate in both watercolor and oil. Participants will learn to address the challenges inherent with their chosen medium. Participants study anatomy and learn to mix skin tones while developing composition and values. Compositional approaches include a close- up portrait approach or a full figure rendering. The application of abstract principles in painting from the nude model will be explored. The Old Master techniques will also be available. Entering participants should be able to draw accurately. Note: beginning/intermediate painting suggested prior to class. Individual attention is given to each participant. There are multiple demonstrations daily.

Steve will continue to teach Henry Yan's technique in the general class schedule. Drawing is a learnable skill. With guidance and practice anyone can learn to draw. Drawing from a live nude or clothed model you will be taught how to draw accurately while understanding the basic underlying form. Steve has been teaching for over 35 years. His vast experience and understanding of the difficulties inherent in figure drawing helps him to guide participants to their highest potential.
