Learn to create powerhouse watercolors using your own photo references. Are you tired of struggling with your photos and being disappointed with your watercolor results? Painting from life is certainly the best teacher for the effects of light and color. But when that’s not possible, many artists turn to their photo references and get trapped into “reporting” what the photo is dictating, detail by detail. Learn how to transform static camera images into inspired, passion-filled paintings that celebrate our human selves. AWS and NWS Signature member Carl Dalio, will show you how to create vibrant paintings that not only get into exhibitions but win awards. In this workshop, Carl will teach you how to take quality photos for painting references, develop storyline concepts, edit and simplify subject matter and evolve dynamic compositions filled with light-energized color. His workshop will also cover simple concepts to a pain-free understanding of perspective. Each day will begin with a demonstration painting, followed by brief concept exercises and lots of personal painting time. There will be daily critiques and, whether individual or group, they will be positive and honest and are always intended to support and inspire.
