          Creating Dynamic Skies in Watercolor Landscapes

          Saturday, May 18, 2024
          10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

          ANA Gallery @ the Rogers Experimental House
          121 W. Walnut Street • Rogers, AR 72756

          In this course we will work with color and contrast in both “wet-on-wet” and “dry brush” techniques to create dynamic, expressive landscape skies. Special attention will be given to flat washes, gradating washes and contrasting tonal washes to develop effects depicting various times of day, lighting and weather conditions in landscape painting with a strong emphasis on the hues of the sky.  We will work on 3-4 different scenarios (time permitting).  Come to learn while having fun!

We will all work together for the evening and visit amongst ourselves. You can discuss what you are working on and find inspiration and support in the group setting. We’ll have some finger foods and wine of course.

                Stylized Still Life Watercolor Class

                Saturday, June 15, 2024
                9:30 AM – 3:30 PM

                ANA Gallery @ the Rogers Experimental House
                121 W. Walnut Street • Rogers, AR 72756

                I’ve created a new class in watercolor that I think most people who paint still life objects will greatly appreciate and enjoy. We’ll create a more stylized abstract approach to our paintings plus add  a very colorful approach to the overall painting.  No stress, no errors, no fuss, just good approaches as well as useful techniques that can apply to painting not only still life, florals and etc. but just about anything else that you might like to “mix up”.
