Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this dynamic workshop – progressing to faces and figures. Through a series of “fun” painting exercises, students will develop a more loose and natural approach – giving them an opportunity to be more spontaneous and expressive in their paintings. We will move into painting people, learning how to express translucent flesh tones, while focusing on the gesture of the person. Painting children will also be covered as well as an approach to quickly interpreting the figure. Some students may want to paint just figures or just flowers, although the demonstrations and instruction are geared to beginning with flowers and ending with faces and figures.
Janet will demonstrate her intuitive approach throughout the workshop and work individually with each student, as well as class instruction. “Show and Tell” sessions will be included so that students can see their progression as well as their fellow students. This is always an invaluable tool.
Our goals will be to “see” in new ways – bringing “life” and interpretation to flowers and people, and also to discover intuitive color and design.
Janet has been a working professional artist for over 30 years, and is a nationally recognized instructor, conducting workshops all over the United States and in Europe, and is a Signature member of the American Watercolor Society, Florida Watercolor Society, as well as others, winning many awards for her paintings. As well as a national instructor, she has demonstrated extensively for various groups and exhibitions and has been a working artist for over 30 years. She has had four instructional DVDs produced, and articles in various publications, including the book “The One Hour Watercolorist”.
ARTIST’S STATEMENT: “I love the qualities of watercolor – its fluid nature. To me, the interaction of artist with the medium is like a dance – full of motion, feeling and expression. I love to watch the painting develop and to discover new color and composition. “As a teacher, I would like to enable students to find their connections with watercolor in a new and expressive way”. Janet Rogers, AWS
