The spontaneous characteristics of both watercolor and acrylic will be discovered while focusing on painting the still life, landscape and architecture.
As a Master in the American Impressionist Society, Carr will be emphasizing the “how to’s” in achieving dynamic and impressionistic paintings using painterly and energetic brushwork. Massing and organizing darks and lights, importance of drawing and the value sketch, atmospheric and linear perspective and adding figures in a painting will also be covered.
Through individual instruction, observing daily demonstrations and critiques, students will develop a personal style in artistic approaches as well as gaining inspiration and enthusiasm for future paintings. Come, paint and enjoy!
