809 Expressive Watercolor with Faces & Figures with Janet Rogers

This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants to quickly gain confidence in approaching the portrait and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way.

Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, (including drawing, color, and paint application will weave into class painting time. Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject. Many “features” will be covered, including an approach to children’s portraits. No fear in this workshop – drawing help is available – no matter what level.

Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or from Janet’s and will also have the opportunity to paint in a gestural and intuitive manner from the live model for half of the last day.

Our goals will be to “see” in new ways -- bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure; and to discover intuitive color and design. All levels welcome.
