Portraits in Watercolor with Robert Way

Breece Crayon

Workshop Supply List
Regardless of your current level of achievement, this workshop allows you to explore various styles and techniques of painting portraits with watercolor paints.  Participants learn various methods of starting, building, and finishing a watercolor portrait painting.  Learn to choose materials, pigments, and tools appropriate for creating a well-executed painting.  Through discussion, demonstrations, and practice, become skilled at mixing the colors seen in your subject.

Participants will investigate a variety of ways to apply watercolor paint to your painting surface to best represent your chosen subject. In conjunction with the study of color and color relationships, explore the use of value, line, edges, texture, rhythm, and atmospheric perspective to effectively focus a viewer’s attention on your painting’s center of interest.
