Capture Light & Atmosphere 3-Day Workshop with Keiko Tanabe, AWS, NWS

October 20 - 22, 2021. 9:00 am to 4:00 pm each day. Break for lunch. 3-day Workshop Price: $390 for 2021 WSI Members. $440 for Non-Members. 

This workshop is designed for those who would like to gain a better understanding of methods and techniques to make a watercolor painting that is simple yet strong.  The goal is to capture the essence of the subject that conveys a certain mood.  The process of simplification begins with visualization.  In representational art, this ability to see the end result of a painting, through the mind’s eye, is instrumental in realizing an artist’s vision. Through complete, step-by-step demonstrations, Keiko will show you how to take the initial inspiration, through the simplification process, to an expressive painting that is strong in composition and content that is full of light and atmosphere.

Subject matters include landscape, cityscape, and waterscape. The introduction focuses on the fundamentals including getting to know our materials and seeing things with an artist’s eye. The areas of topic covered in this workshop include: a preliminary drawing and composition, a variety of techniques in paint application and brush handling, what makes a good design, understanding of relationship of dark and light values, planning & intuition, and how to edit complex visual information.
