WATERCOLOR: Intense Color and Contrast with James Farrand
Sunday, June 10th, 2012
at 12 pm and 2 pm - FREE demo!
James will discuss and demonstrate—among other things—various aspects of contrast in art and color. Particularly, he’ll discuss some of the concepts developed by swiss painter and teacher, Johannes Itten, including contrast of hue, contrast of saturation, and contrast of extension/proportion.
James will also demonstrate the basics of how he goes about achieving these contrasts in the medium of watercolor. By using techniques such as pouring/squeezing, charging, glazing, and masking, he creates paintings with highly saturated colors and values that often have viewers asking, 'that's a watercolor?'. With thoughtful attention to these concepts/techniques, and a goodly amount of patience and a friendly blow-dryer, you will learn how you can do it too.
