Loose and Atmospheric Watercolors

Education // Loose and Atmospheric Watercolors

Nov 10 - Nov 12

Overview // Bring your painting skill to a higher level! Learn how to paint luminous watercolors by manipulating tonal values, color and edge. In this class, Frank Eber will share advanced painting techniques to create atmosphere, balance, and unity in your work. Topics will include design and composition, color and lighting, positives and negatives, simplification of shape, and atmospheric effects. The techniques you will learn in Frank’s workshop transcend the watercolor medium, as they are applicable to oils, acrylics, tempera, pastels, and more.

Separate yourself from the watercolor crowd and experience firsthand why his courses are so popular!

All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium. He stresses a solid foundation in the basics, “…so that our focus is on creating timeless art. An emotional link is necessary in our work, as well as the connection to the vibrancy of everything we paint.”
