Man & Mount

Coming in September!

Dan will demonstrate and explain techniques for creating designs featuring riders in watercolor. Learn the secrets to proportion, vehicle construction, horse anatomy, creating motion and combining these elements in your work.

Lines & Shapes

What's the difference between design and composition? Design, used in addition to composition, will help strengthen and support how we are communicating through our work. The balance of shapes, directionals and negative space, leaving the viewers eye through a painting and guiding them towards the center of interest

Urban Canyons

Over 4 hrs

A focus on design and abstraction for creating believable, exciting Cityscapes. 

Also discussed are the cityscape essentials of how to construct vehicles, keep people in proper proportion and communicate believable perspective.

Trees & Foliage

3 hours

A focus on construction and painting techniques for creating believable, exciting trees.

Trees and foliage can be tricky- learn how to avoid those “halloween”, “wine and paint” black tree trunk traps and mistakes! Color, texture, design, composition, timing and calligraphy all play important roles when bringing trees into your work.

On Skies & Clouds

3 hours
A focus on creating dramatic , moving skies.

Painting with watercolor usually means working from top to bottom, back to front and the biggest shapes to smallest shapes. That said, more often than not, the sky will come first- setting the tone and mood for the rest of the painting. All things to come are influenced by these very first washes.

Myth of Mud

3.5 hours

Climb out of the mud to bring that luminous, translucent, glowing quality to your work. The secret? Proper tone through pigment management. The ratio of pigment to water. We will look at techniques to maintain a beautiful feeling of light even when using grays and those "muddy "colors.
