Sign up now to share a day with Spencer, call 636.228.4005 to reserve a space in his workshop.
Students will learn as the Spencer demonstrates a variety of techniques for applying paint to paper in a plein air setting. The class will focus on various components and aspects of painting watercolors, i.e. differences in brushes, papers, paint quality, as well as application techniques including washes, splattering, dropping and pouring and dry brushing. When, where and how to appropriately use each tool and technique. Class structure is appropriate for ALL skill levels.
We typically begin with brush exercises designed to get students familiar with color mixing and the fluidity of watercolor. They will then learn various approaches to gradient washes both single color and two-color gradients. Lastly, students will design and paint their own watercolors from life.
Students should bring ample paper for exercise and be prepared to paint as many as two (2) 11×15” paintings each day over the course of the workshop.
