Watercolor Society of Oregon & Menucha present Ruth Armitage, Abstracting from Nature, October 23-26, 2017
Revel in texture, line, color and shape in this mixed media workshop exploring the properties of Golden High Flow and Golden Open Acrylics. We will begin with textured watercolor washes, incorporating gouache and acrylic to explore the contrast between transparent and opaque media.
You will work with several methods for abstracting nature in a directed and intentional process. Techniques will include different types of paint application, reductive and layering techniques, mark making, shape, color and texture galore. Pre-planning and intuition will work hand-in-hand to lead artists to creative compositions.
