Join Split Rock Cove for Seriously Playful Watercolor: Developing a Practice with Marcie Jan Bronstein. This weekend watercolor workshop is designed for people working on many levels: those who have wanted to experience the medium but have been intimidated, and those who want to find new freedom in painting and/or watercolor. We’ll dispel the tired notion that “watercolor is unforgiving” by learning about its physical properties and the way paint moves and flows on paper.
Saturday will be filled with clear demonstrations that break down techniques for moving watercolor around on a page. The idea of a watercolor journal – working in the pages of books – will be a focus and an inspiration. Throughout the day, we’ll look at ways to create prompts that lead to an expanded vocabulary of mark-making and surface designs. (For those wishing to bind their own journals, a day of bookbinding will be scheduled later.)
Sunday, we’ll dive down deeper into both the practical and playful, all the while creating unique pages of a watercolor journal. We’ll look to the ever-inspiring sea and the sunset to further broaden the possibilities of how to paint as a practice, in series, and in sequence.
