This course examines the language and techniques of watercolor painting from Landscape. Students will paint using a variety of strategies derived from current and historical practice. This class focuses on a free watercolor approach. The goal is to transmit and exemplify what you see in nature to the paper, learning to simplify and avoid overworking, using the watercolor properties of causing accidents without losing control. This "spontaneous" method of applying watercolor paint is what gives life to the paintings of masters like John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Anders Zom, to list a few. Assignments include copying paintings of these masters, as well as self-directed tasks using pictures from the instructor and the students. Learning through step-by-step demonstrations: how to draw, color mix, use tonal values, control brushwork, and create a composition. The basics of watercolor must be understood to achieve its freshness. The instructor decodes this difficult medium in parts, to help the student learn to let the medium "paint itself". This course is excellent for beginner and intermediate artists who are looking to take their watercolor painting to the next level.
This class will give students the unique opportunity to look through Marcelo's eyes while he demonstrates, lectures, and answers questions in real-time from his studio. Marcelo will have one camera fixed on his painting and palette (right on his hands) and one camera on him as he works. Students will get closer than ever to Marcelo's process. After class, students will receive an exclusive video recording of Marcelo's demonstrations.
This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
