2019 Cindy Crimmin 1-Day Workshop--FULL!

Waterfalls, brooks, surf, coastal rocks, eddy turns, rivulets, even sunlit drainage ditches: all offer pastelists a wonderful opportunity to explore layered colors, shapes and composition, three dimensional forms and wet/dry surfaces, and/or most importantly light and shadow that brings everything to life.  Starting with a discussion of composition and underpainting, this workshop will include a demo of painting New England waterfalls. Participants are encouraged to bring reference photos of any water or rock formation from which to work. Brief, smaller more targeted demos may be interspersed with plenty of time at the easel and a chance for painters to develop their own styles and to capitalize on their own voices, regardless of experience or level of expertise.

Hours: 9:30am - 4:00pm
