Vegging Out With Miriam Watercolor Workshop

Vegging Out With Miriam Watercolor Workshop

Regardless of your skill level a critical and exciting component of your painting is composition. Frequently we get so focused on the object of what we are painting, we forget our purpose and composition. Background in a painting is not an afterthought, or a space filler, or just available splashes of color because “ it” needs something. Background is an integral part of the whole painting.

Working on one (maybe two) 9x12” or larger watercolor paintings, we will learn how to create a compelling composition using vegetables or flowers as our inspiration.

Bring watercolor supplies, a palate, brushes and resource photos we may use. All supplies, including paper, can be purchased at Random Arts.  I will have the correct size and type of paper available for purchase.

Send an email to Random Arts at randomarts22@gmail.com.  SUBJECT - CLASS

A Day of Art with Miriam Hughes 

You are invited to join us for this special workshop with Miriam. She is combining two of her most popular workshops that not only give you a well-rounded experience in learning two mediums, but you will also be delightfully successful in both. We will start the day with the sketching portion of the workshop, learning how to step away from our brains using only our eyes and hands to see and create. With some fun and insightful exercises you will find sketching becoming a new form of relaxation for you. The afternoon portion will be learning how to create astonishing watercolors with just three colors, a black pen and great paper. Supplies required are minimal.

WHEN: Saturday, January 23, 2016 from 9:30am – 4PM (bring a bag lunch) WHERE: The Garden Cottage at 233 Davis St Hendersonville, NC 28739 HOW MUCH: $75.00
