WATERCOLOR WITH MARIE SIEGRIST
ONE DAY WATERCOLOR & WATERCOLOR PENCIL* WORKSHOP TO COINCIDE WITH
MARIE’S SOLO EXHIBIT AT DONA ANA ARTS COUNCIL GALLERY
Tuesday, September 17th, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
at the Dona Anna Arts Council’s Arts & Cultural Center Gallery,
1740 Calle De Mercado, Mesilla, NM
This Workshop is about using traditional watercolor techniques in combination with the use of watercolor pencils*. Watercolor pencils are water soluble, blendable, and can be used successfully as a drawing tool, an adjunct to a watercolor painting, and for making a finished painting. They are also easy to carry, with a brush or two, for painting while traveling. All in all they are a fun tool to have in the watermedia kit.
During this workshop I will be demonstrating a painting of a pretty pink water lily floating on a pond. In the demonstration painting I have used a variegated watercolor wash for the water and the lily pads. Watercolor pencils were used to paint the lily and the dark red edge of the pads. There is also a little surprise bling on the finished painting. I will have waterlily references for your use or you may have photos and sketches of your own that you might prefer to use.
*NOTE: If you have watercolor pencils bring them to the workshop, if you don’t have them the painting can be completed entirely with watercolor.
A required supplied list will be furnished upon registration.
