Interpreting the Figure in Watercolor
June 26-July 1, 2016 (Four Teaching Days)
Returning for the 13th year in 2016
Addressing the figure as the subject for a painting with the same artistic freedom and looseness employed when attempting other subjects in nature is the central theme of Don’s figure class.
“Throughout the workshop I will be putting forth the concept that successful figure painting is more than a visual explanation of anatomical parts. We also benefit from exploring the figure through color, design, and paint quality directions as well.”
Don’s classes are geared to intermediate and advanced painters who are looking for a challenge. Daily demonstrations will excite and stimulate those artists who are eager to stretch beyond the usual answers and discover a new looseness and expressive paint quality in their work.
Don Andrews is a nationally known watercolor artist and workshop instructor. He is a graduate of Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida and a resident of Austin, Texas. Don is an active member and past board director of the American Watercolor Society.
