“ EXPRESSIVE WATERCOLORS WITH FLOWERS AND FIGURES”
WATERCOLOR SOCIETY OF ALABAMA WATERCOLOR WORKSHOP
ALABAMA CENTER FOR THE ARTS
133 2ND AVE NE, DECATUR, AL 35601
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday – MAY 12, 13, 14, 2016
Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this dynamic workshop – progressing to the figure. Through a Series of “fun” painting exercises, artists will develop a more loose and natural approach – enjoying the process of discovering new colors, leaving whites, avoiding mud, while interpreting flowers and figures in this exciting workshop.
Janet will demonstrate her intuitive approach throughout the workshop and work individually with each student, as well as class instruction. “Show and Tell” sessions will be included so that students can see their progression as well as their fellow students. This is always an invaluable tool. “As a teacher, I would like to enable students to find their connections with watercolor in a new and expressive way.”
About Janet Rogers:
Janet is a nationally recognized instructor, conducting workshops all over the United States and in Europe. She is a Signature Member of American Watercolor Society, as well as others, winning many awards for her painting skills. She has demonstrated extensively also for various groups and exhibitions. Four instructional DVDs have been filmed on Janet’s work. Also she has been published in an article in American Artist Magazine featuring her portraits, and is in the book “The One Hour Watercolorist.” “ I love to watch the painting develop and to discover new color and composition.” “I started painting portraits in oils, acrylics, pastels and conte’ crayons about 25 years ago, until I saw watercolor portraits by the master, Charles Reid. I have been in love with watercolor ever since! I especially love painting portraits of children – their innocent and trusting spirit is inspirational, and I am grateful to God for allowing me the privilege of painting them. Of course I also enjoy painting adults – each individual has such a special nature to capture, and my goal is to try to bring forth the beauty in each person.”
