Supply List

Explore the medium of watercolor in a relaxing and creative environment. Award winning watercolorist, Iain Stewart's, sole focus will be bringing your creativity to light and aid you in dispelling the myths of the difficulties of painting in this wonderful medium. Given the right encouragement and understanding of the basic fundamentals, watercolor is a creative outlet unmatched in its ease of use, costs of materials, and pure enjoyment of artistic expression.
"It is my absolute joy to watch students make those tiny breakthroughs that begin to build confidence and leave a lasting desire to continue their exploration. Far too often the background exploration of a painting is left undone leaving the 'Soul" of the image a mystery. It is my hope that by understanding and repeating my process you will find that your watercolors begin to follow a plan rather than a reaction to unanticipated results. Watercolor, if treated correctly, can be much easier than it's reputation might suggest. I can think of no other form of expression that I delight in more than painting and it is my sincere wish to share that pleasure with others."  -Iain Stewart
Through demonstration, careful critique, and lessons learned over a long painting career Iain will help you understand how to prepare for and anticipate the challenges that painting in watercolor presents. By guiding you through his process which relies on simplification of subject through sketching, graphite value studies, and preliminary color studies Iain will demonstrate how to create a road map, that if followed, will greatly improve your painting. This workshop is intended to provide you with an understanding of how to paint in watercolor while avoiding common mistakes by creating a step by step road map that you can use for painting any subject.

Students will follow Iain in a group demonstration. Painters of more experience can work from their own photographs with individual guidance.
