Watercolor WORKSHOP in Bellevue January 15, 2012

Warming Up Your Watercolor Winter Landscapes
One Day Workshop
Sunday, January 15, 2012    11am - 4 pm

$75   Register with Daniel Smith Bellevue Store  (425) 643-1781

Most of the time when we think of a snowy winter landscape we envision a crisp clear sunny winter day where the colors of winter shadows are cool hues of blues and lavenders. On an bright overcast day a soft blanket of clouds will warm up a snowy landscape with gentle shades of gray and soft tones of browns and pinks. These scenes are not always dull or dreary but glowing and alive with rich diffused color setting the mood of peace and calm. Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors with several selected colors of Daniel Smith’s Prima Teks are excellent pigment choices with properties that work well for many different watercolor techniques Susie will demonstrate in this workshop. Test your skills at working wet-in-wet, lifting, glazing, and working with Daniel Smith Masking fluid as you learn to paint soft transitions between snowy shadows and a Northwest sunbreak. This workshop will cover some advanced skills to challenge the experienced artist but Susie also will have patterns and simplified subjects to accommodate a beginner as well. Photos will be available for use and/or purchase (payable to Susie) or bring your own winter photos to use.
This workshop is not limited to advanced watercolor artists but some watercolor experience will be helpful.
Seating is limited. REGISTER TODAY! 425-643-1781
