Workshop Supply List

In this workshop students will focus on creating watercolors using a combination of pouring, traditional brush work, and creating texture with the mouth atomizer.   Ryan will discuss how to simplify complex scenes and how to see color first and foremost as a value.  He’ll also show you techniques for adding texture via masking, spattering, and atomizing. The workshop will be a great learning experience with demonstrations, one-on-one consultations, and constructive critiques. All levels of students are encouraged to participate. Students are welcome to bring their own photographs or use the instructor’s photographic resources.

The three day workshop will highlight a different technique each day with students building upon previous lessons to gain a great understanding of the techniques and applications:

Day One- pouring and masking watercolors.
Day Two- creating impressionistic watercolors using the mouth atomizer tool
Day Three- combining pouring, traditional brushwork, and atomizing techniques.
