Chris Krupinski is a well-credentialed watercolor instructor; her paintings continually draw rave reviews for her fine art work. Chris’s watercolors are created with special consideration to detail. By focusing much of her attention to the smallest detail, the viewer is drawn into the intricacies of her work. Dynamic light and shadow treatments are prominent statements in her paintings. The play of lights and darks develop effective abstract design. Emphasizing these two elements has enabled her to create powerfully expressive still life and bold compositions. The workshop will be held at the Heritage Hall Museum in Talladega, AL on Thursday-Saturday, October 1-3, 2020.
