UPCOMING EVENTS AND WATERCOLOR WORKSHOPS--

June 30, 2024, 4:30-6:00 p.m. at Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, Maryland.  "The Magical Transparency of Watercolor "

This class is back by popular demand!  

One of the hardworking tools in a watercolorist’s toolbox is applying and then lifting wet paint off the paper to create a beautiful transparency effect. In this workshop, we’ll brush rich paint into flower petals and leaves and then gently mop up the paint to reveal amazing sheer pastels. We’ll embellish the details of our paintings with black waterproof ink.

All materials provided, adults 13+ All materials are supplied including wine!
For adults 13+

July 14, 2024, 4:30-6:00 p.m. at Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, Maryland.  "Paint Your Own Decorative Mat Border"

The pure white mat on a watercolor painting serves to highlight and enhance the painting itself.  But in this workshop, we’ll paint our own colorful custom floral borders on white beveled 8 x 10 mats.  We’ll first look at examples and ideas, and then practice painting flowers before painting on the mats.  Your personalized mats can then be used to frame your own photograph, painting, wedding invitation, or other memento.  These will be great to keep or to create a unique gift.  Each participant will paint two mats to take home with a protective sleeve and backing. All materials provided, including wine!

August 4, 2024, 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.at Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, MD.  "Keeping It Loose -- Painting Trees!"   Trees are a beautiful subject for watercolor, and there are a variety of ways to paint them.  In this workshop, we’ll “keep it loose” with two different techniques.  First, we’ll use a mop brush to create a lush willow tree with sweeping branches of green and yellow. We’ll then use oil pastels to add depth and highlights to the sunswept foliage.  Our second project will be a wet-in-wet technique to create a forest grove and, once dry, we’ll use a scratching technique to reveal the white of the watercolor paper creating highlights of branches and tree trunks.  Bring your imagination and a relaxed wrist for a fun workshop! All materials will be provided, including wine!
