Bring your painting skill to a higher level!
Learn how to paint luminous watercolors by manipulating tonal values, color and edge. In this class, Frank Eber will share advanced painting techniques to create atmosphere, balance and unity in your work. Topics will include design and composition, color and lighting, positives and negatives, simplification of shape, and atmospheric effects. The techniques you will learn in Frank’s workshop transcend the watercolor medium, as they are applicable to oils, acrylics, tempera, pastels, etc. Separate yourself from the watercolor crowd and experience for yourself why his courses are so popular!
Small class settings only. Please sign up early!
A painter's painter, Frank Eber paints in a direct, loose style influenced by the old-world masters. Typical in his art are color mixes and lighting that, it has been said, evoke nostalgia while remaining absolutely in the present. He stresses a solid foundation in the basics, “…so that our focus is on creating timeless art. An emotional link is necessary in our work, as well as the connection to the vibrancy of everything we paint.”
Frank grew up in Europe and was mentored by Italian master painter Renato Casaro in 1994 and 95. In the ’80s and ’90s Frank worked as a professional illustrator for video cover sleeves and as a portrait artist by commission. Primarily a plein air painter, his love of travel has given him prime opportunities to paint: he lived for three years in the south of France, and has painted on location in Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Germany and other countries.
Frank is an award-winning watercolor artist and Signature member of the American Watercolor Society (AWS), the National Watercolor Society (NWS), the Transparent Watercolor Society of America (TWSA) and Watercolor West (WW). He is a juried Artist member of the prestigious California Art Club. Frank conducts workshops and demonstrations locally and at the national and international level.
