The Mountain Landscape in Watercolour
Coast Collective Art Centre, Wale Road, Victoria (Colwood), BC, Canada
In this workshop we will learn the essentials of putting together a successful post-impressionist mountain painting. We will discuss sky and cloud formations, sculpting the peaks, the use of the white of the paper to create snow, the importance of cast shadows, atmospheric perspective, creating interest in the midground, and foreground options. Both wet on wet and direct painting with transparent and opaque watercolours will be demonstrated, as well as negative painting techniques. Class runs 10 am to 4 pm. Registration, a supply list, and additional details are on the Coast Collective website. Previous watercolour experience is highly recommended.
