Watercolor painters, discover how to get exciting results by applying color to saturated paper. Join world renowned artist Jeannie Hyland to improve your skills at watercolor painting or to learn all new skills.
Fuller Lodge Art Center is pleased to offer a one day workshop with Hyland from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19. “Wet & Workable Watercolor: Still Life” will help students learn how to work on wet, moist and dry paper to uncover the tremendous flexibility of watercolor.
Hyland will cover managing the moisture in the brush, paint and paper and balancing those with appropriate timing. Wet glazing on saturated paper affords long, relaxed, “open” working time for any subject. Artists can easily get loose, flowing color and soft edges as well as crisp details.
“To set the overall tone, I often start with rough blocking in or intuitive flows of color and work from there,” Hyland said. “ I exaggerate and simplify shapes to bring a painting to life. With bold color I intensify a subject’s energy and mood. Watercolor allows me to paint quickly and with great flexibility.”
Hyland is serving on the Board of Directors of National Watercolor Society, and is a member of numerous watercolor and national art organizations; American, National, and Valley Watercolor Societies, Portrait Society of America, and a signature member of Watercolor West, Women Artists of the West and New Mexico Watercolor Society.
Her work has been exhibited extensively and won awards. She is included in the International Artist Publication “How Did You Paint That? 100 Ways To Paint Still Lifes and Florals Vol. II.”
