JANUARY MONTHLY PAINT-IN: "Landscapes with Spontaneity" with Susan Giannantonio
Class: 9:30-3:00 on Saturday, January 18, 2020
Susan Giannantonio, a WAS-H past president and signature member, will show you how to achieve a natural, uncontrived landscape painting reflecting spontaneity. To achieve interesting marks, at times she utilizes some unexpected tools.
To create a successful gestural, loosely rendered landscape, however, is no happy accident. To do so successfully takes patience, practice and decisively placed marks. The fun comes in when you realize that nature itself can offer surprising tools to create marks and mystify your viewers.
Bring your watercolor materials, a tablet of ¼ sheet (11x15") or approx.. 9 x 12” good 140 lb. watercolor paper for practice. ½ sheet is also fine (15x22")
Important: Bring a mop brush and a rigger. Also handy: a Dagger Striper brush. If you don’t have these, you can watch the demo and decide if you might need them.
Bring a sack lunch, sweater/light jacket (in case the room temp is cool). We’ll have snacks and coffee!
