Watercolor pouring workshop- March 20th, 2016

Watercolor Pouring Workshop with Ryan Fox At Waverly Artist Studio in Cary, NC

My last workshop in January was wait-listed.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn a new watercolor technique.

To register contact Ryan at: ryan@rfoxphoto.com

With an emphasis on design and planning, you will learn the technique of pouring diluted watercolor directly on paper.   Pouring creates a wide range of colors and creates amazing blending effects. Through instructor demonstration, you will learn about masking, wetting techniques, using gravity to mix your limited palette, and preserving the transparency of your layers. You’ll choose your own subject matter: still life, landscape, architectural, floral, or portrait. All levels welcome, including first-time watercolorists.

Who Dat?

Hopefully your town still has a bookstore. If you do, check out the newest issue of Watercolor Artist Magazine, published by F&W Media.

Every year, Watercolor Artist has a feature titled: “Ones to Watch”.  The article showcases 10 up and coming watercolor artists.  The artists are selected by top watercolor painters in the world:

It was an honor to be selected by Iain Stewart for the article. I met Iain last year when I took a 3 day workshop in Washington, VA (not DC).

Poured watercolor- basic explanation

I have been posting a images online of the “poured watercolor” process. Most people have never heard of pouring watercolor and I have been flooded with questions. Here is a basic rundown:

1. Mask your whitest whites with masking fluid (liquid latex).
2. Wait for mask to dry.
3. Spray surface with water.
4. Pour/drip/squirt colors on top of wet surface.
5. Move colors around by lifting paper and letting gravity move the paint
6. Put paper down when you are happy with results. Let dry.
7. Repeat all the steps above.

Sounds complicated, right? Here is a step by step progression of a painting:

(Mask highlights.  Pour light-mid values)

Cesky Krumlov02

(Mask sky area and additional areas of towers and foreground buildings)

Cesky Krumlov03

(Pour darks.  Remove masking)

Fun, huh?
