“THE AGUIRRESPRINGS VISITOR”
by Marie Siegrist, NMWS.
This workshop will explore the charmsand possibilities of using acrylic and watercolor in the same painting working on Cold Press Watercolor Paper.
The image is one of combined sources. What I believe is a Cooper’s Hawk, which visits my backyard, is combined with an old dead tree at the top of a rim in Aguirre Springs.
We’ll scumble, spatter, and stipple acrylic paint to make a foreground that suggests a tangle of grasses and other undergrowth. The old dead tree with textured bark is also acrylic while the soft sky and the hawk (or other bird/animal of your choice) are watercolor.
While this is not a beginner project, I will have another version for those who are less experienced painters.
I will have reference photos and drawings for workshop participants to use OR you may use your own references and drawings of a similar composition.
