PLEINAIR / LANDSCAPE WATERCOLOR IN NEW JERSEY

June 20-23 2019 - Thursday - Sunday

Maker's Circle Studio, Willow School Farmhouse

1150 Pottersville Rd, Gladstone, NJ 07934

9:00am - 4:00pm - $465

This not-to-miss, 4-day class focuses on a loose watercolor approach, similar to that of John S. Sargent's style. The goal is to transmit and exemplify what you see in nature to the paper in front of you, learning to simplify and avoid overworking, using the watercolor properties of causing accidents without losing control.

Students will be guided through step-by-step demonstrations: showing how to draw, color mix, use tonal values, control brushwork, and create a composition. In order to achieve its freshness, the basics of watercolor must be understood. Marcelo decodes this difficult medium in parts, to help the student learn to let the medium "paint itself".

The creative process he uses when creating his own art is the same he teaches. With more than 5 years of watercolor teaching experience, his instruction and practices allow the medium to express itself and create images that are alive. His goal, by exemplifying how to cause accidents without losing control, is for his students to win trust and obtain definitive results in this unforgiving technique.

Classes begin in the studio, and end in Plein Air in picturesque outdoor locations around our area. This course is great for beginner and intermediate artists who are looking to take their watercolor painting to the next level.

Portrait Watercolor in Hoboken, NJ

Thurs to Sunday - Aug 29 - Sept 1 - 10am-5pm

PAINT ANYWAY STUDIOS

Located at 333 Newark St. Hoboken, Nj at the Neumann Leather Factory, 5th Floor, Building E

As a medium that allows only a few corrections, the basis of watercolor must be understood. 

In this class, students will learn how to connect shapes rather than drawing separate objects, achieve lifelike flesh tones and hair color and avoid overworking.

The key is to learn how to cause accidents without losing control, which allows the medium to express itself and create images that are spontaneous and alive. The goal is to gain trust and obtain definitive results in the watercolor technique. 

Head anatomy will be an important part of the workshop. Students will learn a series of lessons, revolving around drawing the head from head casts, pictures, self portraits and live models. This foundational will bring solidity and structure for the application of watercolor, slowly revealing the complexities of the portrait form.

There will be daily lectures, demonstrations, exercises, and one-on-one guidance to find each student’s own style.

Students will experience great fun in the process while painting each other's portrait!

All levels of experience are welcome!
