This workshop is about the process of building a watercolor painting, step-by step instruction, exploring with small value studies in pencil, the use of ‘grisaille’ to build value contrasts, light and shadow shapes, layering of local color, and ‘deconstructing’ a painting with the use of thrown water, spatters, runs and blooms.

Splash Dynamic will help students develop strong watercolor paintings using bold value arrangements, strong lights and darks, correct linear perspective, and attention to powerful composition in urban and architectural landscape paintings.

This is a studio painting workshop where students will concentrating on the process of developing a watercolor painting.   Beginning with a small value sketches in pencil to explore the ‘value pattern’ of sunlight and shadow of your research, we’ll explore the use of ‘grisaille’ underpainting to build value contrast, layering of local color, and ‘deconstructing’ a painting with the use of thrown water, splatters, spray bottles, and runs and blooms.

Students are required to bring a number of urban architectural research photos with a strong sense of light and shadow.

Each student will receive one-on one guidance from Tim, along with ongoing painting demonstrations and techniques.
