Explore the exciting interplay between the representational and the abstract by taking a close-in viewpoint on your subjects. Both natural and man-made objects give inspiration as we find compelling patterns and shapes in the world around us that beg to be painted. Working from photographs and actual objects, you will use a variety of watercolor techniques to bring these details to the fore in your paintings. Students with at least some watercolor experience and an interest in developing their “artist’s eye” will be welcome in the class. Students must acquire their own supplies for this class. A list of recommended supplies is available in the School Store located in room 217 of the Torpedo Factory Art Center.
