Students will have the option of just painting portrait, or just landscape during the workshop. Stan will demonstrate both subjects each day and students have the option of being guided through their painting using a handout, or working on their own subject if they prefer. The importance of drawing, values, mood and design will be addressed each day. Ideas and approaches for color and technique will also be demonstrated and discussed. Learning to choose paintable subjects with good mood and design will also be covered.
Our workshop instructor will be Stan Miller. He is an internationally known American artist who has won awards, exhibited his work, instructed workshops and juried art events around the world. He is an award winner and signature member of the American Watercolor Society. In 2018 he was on the Jury of Awards for the 151st American Watercolor Society International Exhibition.
