    MARCH MONTHLY PAINT-IN: Mountains with Emotion - Fred Kingwill

    Class:  9:30-3:00 on March 16, 2019

    Join Fred Kingwill at our March Paint In for a series of fun activities to help us enjoy the “magic” of watercolors. We will focus on painting the mountains. (Fred lives in Jackson Hole at the base of the Tetons when he is not in Houston).  Fred has been teaching watercolors for over 40 years.

    We will explore basic elements of the mountain landscapes like skies, trees, water, etc.  A  big part of the day will focus on how to include emotions in your paintings.   Bring your normal watercolor supplies and maybe some extra paper as we will be doing many small exercises.

    A very special Van Gogh drawings and paintings exhibit at the MFAH will be held from March 10 thru June 27.   In conjunction with this exhibit, Caroline Graham will help us learn how Van Gogh‘s pen and ink drawing style led to the development of his technique of brushwork in his larger works.  Using your landscape photos - develop ink drawings and washes using blue, brown and black inks, and white gouache on various toned papers.

    Note:  A supply fee of $15 will be charged to all attendees and included in your registration (gold and silver members will be charged $15).   Caroline will provide various toned papers for the class to use to make 4-5 drawings.
