Writing Holidays UK
CWA presents several workshops annually for its members and for other interested artists with nationally and internationally known artists.
Carol Carter – Watercolor from the Heart, April 19-22, 4 Days, All Levels
Carol’s early years in Florida left her with the strong visual impression of the importance of water as an environment for human activity. In much of her work, water provides the setting for anonymous figures, and she often uses images of water and tropical themes. The paintings contain duality: clarity and ambiguity; sanctuary and threat; pleasure and pain. The use of vibrant, saturated-color contributes to the tension between these extremes. Strongly recommended by our recent guest artist, Iain Stewart, Carol is well recognized by her fellow artists.
In this workshop, Carol will demonstrate her technique of wet, loose watercolor. Each day begins with a uniquely tailored lesson to inspire. She will discuss color, water, design, and value. The brilliance of color and the purity of paint application will be emphasized. She will talk about juxtaposing colors to make them vibrate. Imagery, content, and point-of-view are a focus. The afternoon will be devoted to individual instruction and group critique. All levels are welcomed but some experience with watercolor is helpful.
