Jeannie aims to inspire artists to create character in their figurative work. She will share her painting application and spontaneous thoughts and stories that guide her design process and style. As a student you are encouraged to be imaginative about the people in your reference photos. To study their expressions, body language, surroundings and interactions and then paint what you sense about them or what you makeup from that point. You will hear about natural design in reference materials, cropping for impact, versatility of pigment to water ratios, intentional and spontaneous marks, use of titanium white as an additional pigment, and the freedom to change your mind (yes in watercolor). This workshop will focus primarily on the face. You will work on as many paintings as you like with the goal to create exhibit quality art that speaks.
Exhibiting internationally, Jeannie's work has been recognized with numerous awards including the American Watercolor Society’s 144th Gold Medal of Honor for her painting “Kenneth”. Jeannie juries art exhibitions and gives figurative design watercolor workshops to artists, always encouraging a purpose for creating art. Her original work and commissions are in both private and public collections and represented in art magazines. She is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and other select small groups.
