Watercolour BootCamp

I taught a fabulous 3 day workshop this past weekend at Kensington Art Supplies & Instruction.  It was a fabulous workshop because of the participants –  a  wonderful group of enthusiastic and talented painters.

Two of the main concepts we covered were value and also understanding and working with water.  On Friday we  basically played all day working on a very, very, wet landscape.  It was interesting since no one was very familiar with this approach that we were all at the same level (no matter how experienced we were).  I’m including samples of those paintings below.

Some comments from the workshop

“I got exactly what I wanted from this workshop, Rex – from the concrete skills such as brush technique, wash applications and the importance of value” 

“Rex has a unique ability to build on what each student accomplished.  A delightful class” 

“I loved Rex’s class because it really took me out of my comfort zone and pushed me to try new techniques and methods.”

      Hi Joanne: Poor you. Suffering in Phoenix and missing all the snow and cold. It was a wonderful workshop and it is unfortunate that you couldn’t make it because I think you would have really enjoyed it. We’ll see you again. Rex

    Wow, what amazing results. I would proudly hang any one of those “student” paintings in my home. I’m a bit envious of the experience. Let me know if you’ll be doing another one some day.

      Hi Shelley:

      It was a great workshop. It definitely inspired me. That first days exercise is one that you would have really enjoyed. I will be doing a couple of other workshops this year but I’m certainly thinking of reprising this one at Kensington. I’ll let you know. Rex
