Painting the Impressionist Watercolor with Judith Fulmer ... July 17-21, 1-4pm


Students will be introduced to painting the light with watercolor using large masses and temperature through the block study method.  First they will see examples of finished studies and a demonstration of a block study, and then students will do a block study on their own.  I will use guided participation methods and on-the-spot corrections to assist students in making appropriate color choices.  Once students have completed their studies, they will participate in a group critique to help them identify successful studies and to provide detailed feedback and support where needed. Students will do more studies and apply what they have learned about expressing light through mass and temperature to a landscape.  Terms such as Local Color, Brilliance, Mass, Warm Notes, and Cool Notes will be introduced and reinforced.
