Class Registration

JGP-31-20 Watercolor Unleashed: Painting from Photos with Julie Gilbert Pollard



The focus of this class will be to combine the "reality" of the landscape, as seen by the camera, with the passion a student can bring to his or her work by using their imagination and memory.

By concentrating on shape and value as the most important of the building blocks of painting, students will use “color-as-value” to stimulate an emotional response from viewers. They will learn to use unexpected color combinations in unpredictable ways to convey how they see AND feel about the world in which we live. Technique will be studied also, as a necessary component to the "big picture" of landscape painting.

A photo will be provided for use for the first class study. Students will bring their own reference material for the remainder of the class. There will be demonstrations of techniques suitable for the subject matter, exercises, critique and lots of painting time. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting!
