Watercolor Along the Garden Path with Paige Smith-Wyatt
Through Paige Smith-Wyatt’s joyful, stress-free approach to watercolor, learn to utilize the unique qualities of this medium to create vibrant, expressive florals. Paige's workshops are taught in a creative and supportive environment that includes demonstrations of techniques she uses in her personal approach to watercolor painting and significant one-on-one instruction. Paige will discuss the use of photographic reference, as well as how to interpret a photo in order to give life and energy to the subject. While concepts of art and design, such as color theory and composition will be discussed, Paige encourages each student to follow their own unique path to completing paintings with the goal of instilling enthusiasm and confidence in the student. Depending upon student interest, Paige will also demonstrate her technique of waxing a painting and mounting it onto a wood panel for a modern presentation. All skill levels welcome.
