A Modern Approach to Watercolor
The goal of this workshop is to show the untapped power of watercolor. The focus will be on how to approach this medium from a contemporary point of view, powerful, emotional and delicate, not the traditional transparent way it is looked upon. Antonio applies watercolor in a thick and juicy manner, giving his subjects a startling boldness. Learn how attention to details and unusual perspectives make for poetic, moody works with strong textural qualities. Antonio’s presentation will show the materials he uses (paints, paper, palettes, brushes, etc.), his set-up and how he applies colors. He will demonstrate a modern approach to water media, while students watch and ask questions. The remainder of the day will be one-on-one instruction. Antonio hopes this will give an insight into the technique. The aim is for each student to discover and be inspired to find their own style.
