The Portrait in Watercolor: Light and Dynamic

Cost: $50.00  |   Participants: Limit 50

Creating lively, dynamic portraits using the core potentials of watercolor: transparency, lightness, and spontaneity.

The first “Workshops International” (online) mini workshop will be taught by artist Michael Solovyev from Montreal, Canada. Michael is often called a “sunny watercolorist” – his airy, transparent paintings look as though they emit sunlight. His traditional academic art education, extensive experience as a theater stage designer, and his career as an oil painter have informed his current priority as a watercolor artist – the depiction of light.

Michael will introduce you to the project construction technique that he uses most often – step-by-step and layer-by-layer image construction, using both dry brush technique and soft transitions. Where to start? How to structure the work correctly? Together, incrementally, you will make a complex, detailed portrait project.
