Mick McAndrews: Sophisticated Simplicity in Watercolor

April 6 - April 8


When: April 6-8, 2022 from 10:00am-4:00pm

Course Fee: $395 – Registration is now closed.

Level: All levels (basic knowledge & some previous experiences strongly recommended to benefit from this workshop)

Immerse yourself in the unique qualities of watercolor in this comprehensive workshop designed for painters looking to strengthen their skills in composition, expand their visual language, and develop their artistic voice. Create more interest in your paintings as you exploit the wonder and intrinsic beauty of watercolor. Discussions and demonstrations will emphasize the importance of developing dynamic shapes, value contrast, and edge quality to produce sound compositions. Working with a limited palette, simplifying scenes, perspective, and color theory will also be discussed.

Participants can work on the same subject matter as the instructor or you can choose to work from your own reference material with individual guidance as necessary. The instructor will share their reference image ahead of time (a city scape, landscape and seascape). If students choose to bring their own image, we suggest you bring a few options to help you choose the best image to recreate.

Registration is now closed. Please email events@thefireflyartists if you would like to be added to the waiting list.
