"Like a researcher in his laboratory, I am the first spectator of the suggestions drawn from the materials. I unleash their expressive possibilities, even if I do not have a very clear idea of what I am going to do. As I go along with my work I formulate my thought, and from this struggle between what I want and the reality of the material - from this tension - is born an equilibrium."   -  Antoni Tapies

 

Watermedia Workshops

 

Intuitive Painting with Watercolor and Gouache

This workshop is designed to teach all levels of students to paint intuitively, starting without preconceived ideas or outcome. There will be no preliminary planning or drawing. Process will dictate direction as students use mark-making tools, watercolor and gouache to implement elements and principles of design. Instruction will start with random marks, then color using a mixture of ink, watercolor and gouache to create a library of design elements to be used in conjunction with design principles to finish the work. There will be regular comments and evaluation of work in progress concerning relationships between elements and principles. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is work which is compositionally pleasing and aligned with the artist's personal aesthetic.
