Students should plan on arriving at 9:00am to allow for set up of their supplies. The workshop will start promptly at 9:30am and go to 4:00pm with a 45-minute lunch. From 9:30 to noon. Dale will lecture on the basic principles of watercolor especially related to landscape painting. This would include a couple of demonstrations on:
- structures such as a farmhouse
- a small explanation of linear perspective
At noon will be a break for lunch returning promptly at 12:45pm.
In the afternoon students will be provided with a reference photo. This portion of the workshop will consist of a step-by-step painting where Dale will paint the first phase of the watercolor and students will recreate what was demonstrated. Dale will then demo the second phase of the painting, sharing tips and techniques. Students will then paint the second phase. Dale will demo the final phase and students normally are able to complete their rendering of the painting in the allowed time. Dale will provide personal instruction, as needed, while students are painting.
At the end of the day a critique will take place
