Watercolour Painting - Big Skies, Clouds & Landscapes

Course Code: ARTS1665

This course is not suitable for beginners. Instruction is suitable for intermediate painters with a basic knowledge of materials and fundamental painting skills.
Interpret the drama and beauty of the Ontario landscape and skies while challenging yourself to take risks and explore watercolour painting. Flat, graded and variegated washes will be reviewed and practiced before incorporating into more challenging coursework. Learn methods of painting on hot and cold pressed paper with different moisture content (wet, damp and dry) to achieve different edges and pigment interactions. Learn to mix a range of intermediate and neutral colours from pure primaries, unifying your work and avoiding mud. Study will include skies at various times of day and several cloud formations. Proportion and composition will be discussed to inform pleasing works and atmospheric perspective will be employed to achieve the illusion of pictorial depth. Instruction will include daily demonstrations and ongoing feedback as requested.
