Do you dream of adding poetry and mood to your paintings? 

The charm and strength of the watercolor medium comes from its luminosity, fluidity and transparency.  While these qualities provide great atmosphere to a painting, they cannot be achieved without the artist being able to work with adequate water using the wet-on-wet technique.   This is the ultimate challenge for those who want to master the medium.  Painting in this fashion takes skill, artistic judgement and imagination, and courage, but it also can provide tremendous satisfaction.  

Through step-by-step live demo, JJ will bring a painting to completion, showing how to use the techniques to transform an ordinary landscape picture into an atmospheric/poetic painting.  After each segment, he will guide participants in their individual work. Participants will have approximately 4 hours to finish their paintings.  JJ will provide photos to be used for reference.  Focus will be given to the wet-on-wet technique of watercolor. He will also talk about drawing, value, color and painterly approach. Throughout the workshop, JJ will share his personal insight and wisdom as it relates to watercolor painting.
