In this workshop, Iain Stewart's focus will be on bringing your creativity to light along with dispelling the myths of the difficulties of painting in watercolor. He’ll show you why watercolor is the perfect artistic medium, unmatched for its ease of use, cost of materials, and enjoyment of personal expression.
Through individual instruction and thoughtful critiques, Iain will help you prepare for and anticipate the challenges that watercolor painting presents. His process relies on simplification of the subject through both exploratory sketching and value studies; this is a “road map” that will greatly improve your painting skills and provide you with a repeatable process that you can use both in the studio or en plein air.
Iain plans to have students follow him in group demonstrations from his photographs or from outdoor sketches. More experienced painters are encouraged to work from their own photographic references. The class setting will be relaxed and accommodating for all skill levels, and he will spend as much time as possible for one on one instruction. Iain believes that a workshop should focus on the student, not on how well the instructor can paint; it’s about you and your experience as you continue on your artistic journey.
